This is a problem for me as well, but I made a rule that what is on my kid's plates belongs to my kids, what is on hubby's plate belongs to hubby, etc. What I do is plan a snack for time that I am cooking and/or setting out snacks...I put mine on a small plate before I begin and that is what I nibble one. This way I don't dip into their plates and I stay on plan.

About a year ago someone told me on these boards that the leftovers on a plate would normally be trash, so why would you eat trash? I think of it that way now when I clean off the table.
