I am really not trying to be a jerk because I too have a grazing issue but I have found the easiest way not to do it is to not put the food in my mouth. Seriously, it is that easy. I used to go into the kitchen, open a cabinet, eat a few nuts etc. Now I just don't. What you are doing wrong is continuing to put the food in your mouth. Stop.
As for getting kids down to two meals, well, I can't help you there as I don't have kids. I am sure others will chime in though Best of luck!
somehow I manage to leave my intelligence and decorum at the door wherever I go. I doubt your journal will be an exception to that - not on the rug
