No, though there are many reasons your parents could be 'controlling' of it. Financial struggles that you dont know about, wanting you to eat your actual meals rather than snacking all day, etc.

Some people are in fine financial place when they have children and face struggles as years go by. I wouldnt be quick to jump to conclusions..

Gotta be honest, the only time I've ever heard of anyone doing this, involved a mother that was a psychopath who'd lock the fridge and larder and only feed the kids 4 times a day, then beat them all if one of them found their way into the fridge or larder, they weren't even poor or anything. So I'm going to have to say no.
