Beach*Bike*Run*Mama Posted October 19, 2013 Share Posted October 19, 2013 My youngest was invited to a siblings-welcome birthday party. I was thrilled that we could actually go to a birthday party in our new town...meet their classmates and parents...start to spread roots. Standard birthday fare was served - pizza, cake, juice, water, and some crudite. I was hopeful that my children - ages 10, 8, and 6 - would be happy enough with attending the fun roller skating party and not fixate so much on the food. Crudite and water was not doing it for them. I brought along a "special treat" of Trader Joe's Ends and Pieces smashed All Fruit Bars in place of the cupcakes if they wanted it. My 6- and 8-yo were the well-behaved ones...not happy with the situation but figured that they would rather skate and play with classmates. Limited amount of pouting. My 10yo, on the other hand, was a HUGE ISSUE. I understand that the whole point of the Whole30 is to detox the body and get into a different mind set in regards to food, however, I really need to prepare better for "the next time". I fed them a good snack beforehand and had an awesome dinner and Movie Night ready for when we returned from the party. What would you do? We have been paleo-ish for the last 2 years but 10yo DS has been falling-off-the-wagon (lying about his intake etc) hence the Family Whole30. I cannot say that parties are off-limits when on Whole 30 bc I think the parties are a necessary part for establishing roots in our new town and we are rarely invited. Help...
