We sometimes give in to the Whine in the shop for a sweet, and I try to help her pick the smallest/ healthiest (? If that is possible) sweet or crisp. Fridays is also Sweets Day at school, where they buy a sweetie bag for R5. It is one of the things that get the Toddler to school in a very bright mood! How can you say “No!” to that?
If at all possible, we do the disappearing trick with some of the sweets! She’s still happy with what she gets! (I hope it lasts for a while! Wink smile)
Or we eat when she’s not around!
I am saving her from large quantities of sugar!
I am saving her from refined foods!
I am saving her from all the extra additives, colourings, preservatives and junk that they put in sweets!
I am saving her one sweet at a time!
That why, whenever there is a sweet to hide or to magically disappear, I don’t have any quilt-ridden thoughts lingering…
I am doing what I am doing for the health of my child!
(Now I need someone to do the same for me! *Hint*)
Do you also “steal” your children’s sweets?
