    I have babysat lots and people do it differently- some leave money for a pizza, some say make something from the pantry, some leave food out. I once had a friend babysit and I left her a pizza and a family size block of chocolate, and she texted me halfway throug the night to say to NEVER do that again because she'd eaten the whole thing, lol.

    I Baby sit one to two nights a week for the same family. I work my day job from 8-4 and then drive straight there and usually don't get home before 11pm. Some times they will specifically buy me or make me dinner but if they forgot or don't have time ill just make toast or noodles or whatever is in the cupboard. I;m happy to just have some toast when i get hungry, i couldn't not eat form lunch time until 11pm

    I've never expected food to be left out, if I don't know the people well or haven't met them at all I usually eat before I go and then when I get home if I'm hungry.
    It would be nice but I've never expected it, I treat it like a job, do what needs to be done then worry about food later Lol.

    It would be nice though

    I babysat when I was younger and was always welcome to whatever was in the pantry.
