I'm redoing my timetable as everything has changed within the last couple of months, more so in last couple of weeks. I know most of what I'm going to put down but I'm just curious as to what everyone's meal/snack times are? What time do you serve:

Morning Snack
Afternoon Snack


Many Thanks (again!) :)

p.s. last question for now as baby has just woken up! Will catch up with replies later! :)

I don't have set meal times as it varies -
breakfast has been as early as 7:15, now its 8ish as I don't have any early mindies this term.
am snack usually about 9:30am.
lunch has been as early as 11:20 (for a mindie who had to have lunch b4 the preschool run as was collected early pm) but now is 12:30 ish after preschool run.
pm snack as soon as we get in from school run
dinners about 5:10 pm but has been earlier/later depending on football/brownie runs etc!

I don't do breakfast - mindee arrives 8.30am and I leave for school. My kids have breakfast at around 8am though.

Morning snack - around 10/10.30am.

Lunch - was 12pm, now between 12.30pm-1pm as dd doesn't finish playgroup until 12pm.

Dinner - again, don't do it, as mindee goes at 5pm, but for my two, 5pm-5.30pm.

Breakfast - only do this some days, but when I do it's at 7.45/8am
Morning snack - 10/10.30am depending what we are doing
Lunch - 12/12.30pm
Afternoon snack - 3.45/4pm, depends how quickly we get back from school
Tea - 5/5.15pm, that's for my kids and the mindees I feed.

This is roughly how it works out most days.
