Yesterday I came across a post out there about how everyone loves to give kids junk food.  Why Is Everyone Always Giving My Kids Junk Food?  It really resonated with me and a ton of other parents out there. Think about it – snacks at meetings, get-togethers, sports events, outings – it’s common for it to be processed, sugary crap. I really noticed this big time when we switched Nate to gluten free. Holy cow you would have thought I asked everyone to climb Mt. Everest with me when they found out they couldn’t give him the same snacks as everyone else. In fact, some people now go out of their way to buy sugary gluten free crap to give him. It’s pervasive — treats are correlated to fun and joy nowadays, not hunger.

You don’t want to create OCD kiddos who are all crazy about what they put in their mouth, but you also want them to be conscious of what they are putting in their mouth, so they don’t pay for it later in poor health and obesity.

Parenting is hard – we just have to do the best we can, but without a doubt act as their advocate. They do not know what’s best for them at their young age and it’s our job to decide that -so limiting the crap food they eat is what is best for them even if they wont realize it until they are old enough to know better.  Being a fun murderer is no fun at all.
