We try to control what junk goes into our kids. Our close friends, family, neighbors, and repeat playdate families know our stance on sugar and other junk. But other people who come in contact with our children don’t know how we feel about it. And they are handing out the sugar freely! These are wonderful people actually- they are your child’s effective and warm teacher, they are the nice moms of your child’s fellow classmates, and they are your hard working school administration. Pediatricians recommend 2 or 3 treats per week per kid. Kids and concerned parents are being bombarded by sugar, and moms like myself, feel like every day is one big food fight. Childhood obesity and diabetes are at levels never before seen. We have this all wrong. Places of education need to contribute to the health education of children, not fight against it.
