eat first

The best way to avoid that hungry "when are we gong to eat?" problem is to eat a good filling meal before candle lighting time and also drink enough. Then you will enjoy the Seder much more. Never go into YomTov (Or Shabbos either) hungry or thirsty. Shabbos is a little different because you should have a good appetite for the Shabbos meal but you could still eat an apple or cake or something before candle lighting and certainly drink. Every minute of Shabbos is supposed to be "oneg" (joy) and if you're platzing away waiting for Kiddush, that's not oneg.

But before the Seder eat a good meal.
