Topic: RE: Our kids/the surgery/eating in general
I had close cousins who were only allowed treats on Saturday and we made a big deal and went the candy store faithfully on Saturday. My husband said no to that. I keep in our house for treats Sugar Free Jello, SF Popsicles, Fiber 1 bars and brownies, nature valley granola bars asst flavors, Quaker choch pb granola bars, fruit all kinds, baby carrots and kellogs chips/cracker things. They have asked for Goldfish/Cheese Its lately so I get them a box of those sometimes.
I think the word diet needs to be cut out of my vocabulary and just eat and lead by example.
I am not comfortable having candy and more junk food in addition to what I have above in our house. My husband has no control and I am worried about his diabetes. I obviously have none or I wouldn't be here today, and I don't want my kids to think they need to have it in the house. I guess that would have been a great question to ask Mya last night why did she think we needed to have dessert every night? It isn't something I was raised on either dessert was a treat. I am going to ask her that today well ask them all that today so I am not pointing it out to her and see what they say.
Thanks for all your responses gives me lots to think about.
