One of the many things that I am afraid for my daughter is her to grow up fat. You know how much criticisms huge people get when they go out in the public and I don't want it to happen to the lil one, to be humiliated by the non-appreciative beings. Her being healthy and a normal kid are just amongst the many wishes I have.
Thus, I don't train or teach her to have a sweet tooth. Her everyday meals include fruits, vegetables and rice of course with tons of water. I do give her a cup of juice a day as suggested by her pediatrician. No candies nor chocolates nor cakes nor ice cream. Am I depriving her of those comfort foods? I may say I am as they bring no good to one's health.
So last Saturday, hubby brought himself a pack of six bottles of Kool-Aid punch. He said he's just gonna try 'em. The lil one saw him sipping and so asked for some. She had this face of disliking the taste but then when she tried it again, she said, "It's good, mommy!" From them on, the lil one kept on asking, I gave her one serving a day til she finished the six. No more Kool-Aid punch for her.
