Our teenage son often gives the impression he is ill-fed. He can be found lingering around the fridge, often asks the same question repeatedly, “What time are we having dinner?’ and seems to become more affectionate when I am dishing up food. As endearing as this is I have found some snacks help and he especially likes these Oaties or Oatie biscuits which are easy to make and often fought over.
