"I will not feed her that!" is what I said about a lot of things. Fast food, sugar, junk, hot dogs, & so on.
I wanted (& still want) my daughter to only eat healthy things, to be a healthy child. I have heard if you do not feed a child sugar, they will not crave it. Whether that is true or not, that was what I was shooting for. To not have a toddler/child throwing a fit because she only wants chicken nuggets or a cookie. But like many other things, I gave in. I take the easy way out. A lot.
Kenzie eats healthy mostly. She does occasionally get a cookie while we walk around the grocery store.
That is mommy being selfish, it allows me to shop in peace. & I do get her kids meals at fast food places & restaurants. She is a potato/fry lover.
She may have had cake and ice cream on a few occasions. When it comes to drinks, for me that is a different story though. I will not just give her anything. I can not say the same for everyone else when she
is in their care.
Fellow mommies... feel free to judge. But most have or will do the same.
What Kenzie eats on the regular:
Breakfast- oatmeal, fruit, fruit cup.
Lunch- toddler meal, left overs, if we are out we go eat somewhere.
Dinner- toddler meal, whatever I make for dinner.
Snack- goldfish, toddler snacks, cookie.
Drink- Milk, Coconut milk, water, water down juice.
Anyone brave enough to admit that they feed their toddler/kid unhealthy food from time to time?!
Feel free to confess here, I will not judge. :P
Also, what do you feed your child on the regular?
