Do you let your kids eat snow?

Obviously not the yellow kind but if they picked up a ball of nice clean snow would you let them chow down?

I'm reserving my answer until later in case I'm in the minority.

Yes! But they know it has to white, no dirt or anything else in it.

Whew! I'm not crazy! It must be my neighbourhood but I often feel like "that mom" for letting my kids jump in puddles, squish mud and eat snow.

Yup. It's DD2's thing. The minute it snows she fills up a bowl and goes to town.

In theory, heck yes! Ava recently got her first taste of snow when she visited my parents in Maine last week.

only if it falls from the sky into their mouths.

Now, do my kids eat snow? Yes. I need to retrain my 2yr old, but haven't had the chance recently.
