Hangry; bad-tempered or irritable as a result of hunger. While it might seem like a made-up word, the feeling is real. We all know the feeling you get when you are hungry, and when something does not go right, the irritation seems amplified, so imagine that for your children who often have much less patience than adults.
The solution? Keep snacks on hand at ALL times to avoid the hanger and keep your little ones sustained. Throw some in your handbag, the car, and school bags to make sure that if hunger strikes, they have something healthy and satisfying to hold them over until the next meal.
