    My husband's coworker handed my then 2 year old a frosting covered strawberry 'cereal bar' full of artificial sweeteners without asking me and said 'don't worry, it's healthy'. 
     
    My mother: You need to drink milk
    Me: I'm lactose intolerant. Besides I don't drink coffee but the coffee you drink is stripping all the calcium and magnesium from your bones.
    (a while later she's diagnosed with osteoperosis after a lifetime of eating piles of yogurt, milk and cheese)
    Me: See, eating all that dairy doesn't help
    Her: It runs in the family, you better start drinking milk.

    I teach young kids and their lunches are awful, it's almost entirely sugar and processed junk.

    The only thing we can do is lead by example. I share healthy snack and meal recipes and ideas with friends and sometimes they use them. I don't tell them they are slowly killing their kids because people don't want to hear that. But if you post pictures of your fun healthy snacks and lunches on facebook people will emulate them a lot. Mothers are so competitive and seem to feel the need to keep up with the latest trends, and the latest trends are changing for the better.....

    At home we only eat good real food because that's what I cook. When we go to parties and such we are more lenient with treats and food choices (like cake). The kids are all for the sweet treats on special occasions, but because we only eat real food at home, they refuse to eat 'junk meat' like chicken nuggets, hot dogs and hamburgers when people offer it to them outside the home. They find it disgusting.

    Ha, the school I work at had its bbq tonight, I wonder if it was the same one It certainly sounds like the same parents who packed the lunches I saw today. 
     
    I feel guilty that I send my daughter with rice and beans with mixed veggies and fruit because she's massively picky right now. But then I see the rice crispee squares, cookies, gogurt, 'fruit' gummies, juice, 'cheez' n crackers, and caramel covered rice cakes that make up other kids lunch boxes and think rice and beans for a skinny 5 year old aren't such a terrible thing. At least she eats paleo at dinner....
