now, Im gonna go with granny . Camping. refusing sweets is just as bad as too much. a little 6 yr. old shouldnt be worried about weight . its baby fat if anything. You cant win you know. something will be done wrong. no getting around that.
She doesn't worry, granny. I worry for her. We never discuss her weight. But recently she was getting candy at school (big bags or chocolate bars) then coming home and begging for cake or cookies or something. I don't mind going out for milkshakes or ice cream cones once in awhile. It's the every day that's hard.
The veggies for snacks are ones she chooses. I let them each chose when we shop, and that's how we ended up with a 5lb head of cabbage. She usually chooses radishes, and the boy picks carrots or apples. We also ALWAYS have bananas.
Anyway, I get full of words when I don't feel good. You should hear me when I'm tipsy.
