    Please proofread the following sentence.
    Children nowadays like to eat a lot of snacks before meals. They then eat less in the meals. This seriously disturb their eating habits.

    I suggest you change in the meals, as this doesn't sound correct to me.

    You could also use inbetween instead of before meals - but that is your choice.

    Also, you forgot to add the 3rd person (singular) s to the verb disturb. This is an important inflection.

    He disturbs

    John disturbs

    It disturbs

    This/that disturbs


    I am not a teacher.

    I would suggest this;

    "They then eat less at mealtimes."
