Default Resource Guarding

For a dog who only resource guards when it is stolen food, how do you work on it? It might only happen 3 times a year, if that, and on those occasions that we have left something in his reach to be stolen, we have decided it is just his, and there is no confrontation.

However, I would like to work on it because of grandchildren in the house and other visitors who might leave stuff out. We are pretty good at managing it with the grandchildren. They eat at the table only. And right now, they are at an age that my dog is tethered to me when they are over quite a bit just so that everyone is well supervised, and I know that THEY aren't being rough with him.

I got the book Mine, and if he were guarding his bowl or his toys, I understand the steps to work on it. I just cannot quite figure out the way to work on stolen food items.
