I arrive at mothers group with a piece of fruit for my 2 kids and on the table are sweat biscuits, coloured pop corn, dorritos and junk. Then I am called a meany because I ask them to eat the fruit first!
Same at park...tiny teddies, corn things...
Thats all fine, but then the parents wonder why their kids wont eat at mealtimes???
I am like this too. DD and DS have to eat their fruit. Just recently at mother's group I have started buying DD a smartie biscuit after she has eaten her fruit but she has to share the biscuit part (not the smartie's) with her brother.
For the few months prior to that we started a treat where we would have a coffee (babycino for her) and biscuit while her brother slept in his pram after we grocery shopped. He stopped sleeping just as she started asking to have it at mother's group instead, perfect timing and she gets one treat a week like that.
