If you’ve ever tried to make a food “off limits” for yourself, then you know what happened – you craved it more than ever. Then you ate it, and had increased feelings of guilt around it because it was “off limits.” Spare your kids this cycle. Foods don’t have to be forbidden in your home. Just focus on finding tasty alternatives and having more of those than the other stuff. But if your kids still want to occasionally have the “bad” stuff, that’s okay (and try not to call it “bad”). The important thing is that they’re having more of the healthy choices.
