I'm just wondering what other people do when the kid's have friends over at meal times and for snacks. At my house, I usually offer to let the kids eat with us. My DH & MIL have no problem sending the kids home while we eat. As for snacks, our cupboards used to be open to anyone who came in, but with food prices rising, I can't afford to feed everyone all the time. Who sends the kids home for meals and limits snacks and who lets the kids eat meals with the family and has an open cupboard policy?
