    Default Dinner time - what would you do??

    I've just started going to the gym regularly at around 5:30pm weeks nights. They have a crèche there which is why I go at that time but it coincides with when my boys would normally have dinner. I don't want the staff there to have to oversee dinner every night plus it limits what I can give them as there's no designated eating area or table.

    They usually eat at around 5:30 and are in bed by 6:30pm (before I joined the gym).

    So I'm thinking I should either give them dinner at 4:50pm so they can be fed and get there by 5:20pm then I can just give them a yoghurt or piece of fruit etc. at 6:40pm when they get home.

    Or

    Feed them up in afternoon tea - and give them a smaller portion of dinner at 6:40pm when we get home.

    I'm hoping they'll be okay with a regular 7pm bedtime.

    Either way I'll bath them before we go to the gym.

    What do you think??

    I would give them dinner earlier and then a 'supper' at the gym.
