Tavia Posted June 11, 2012 Share Posted June 11, 2012 We have been eating paleo since January. We did whole30 then, and we're doing another round now, in June. DS (3.5) has done really well with it. He just eats whatever we give him and isn't too picky. My cousin's daughter had a birthday party at Chuck E Cheese. I didn't want him to feel excluded, so I let him have a piece of pizza and a small piece of cake. He had horrible diarrhea about 30 minutes afterwards. He kept saying, "my stomach hurts. pizza makes me feel bad" I felt so awful for letting him eat that junk, but I didn't want him to be the weird kid who's mom wouldn't let him eat pizza! We went to another party a couple of weeks later and I didn't let him have ice cream or cake. I gave him some fruit and carrots instead. I felt awful because he kept asking me for cake... but I knew it could make him feel badly again so I said no. A lot of rambling to ask... how do you handle situations like this? Do you let your kid have an occasional treat? If so, how do they react? Do you restrict cake/pizza/ice cream at birthday parties and other social events?
