Lil C Is on a Diet Starting Tomorrow
I’m putting Lil C on a diet. No, he’s not overweight or overfat or obese. He is simply fueled by sugar and fat.
The child rarely eats anything that is not sweet. I thought of it as one of his quirks. This weekend I noticed that he was barely eating at meals because he was getting little treats for Valentine’s Day everywhere we went (and at home).
So it’s time to give his little three-year old taste-buds a make-over.
Tomorrow will be Day 1 (today would be just too difficult given that it’s V-Day).
I’m going to record what he eats for a week, including two weekend days when we get LAZY. We will avoid candy, chocolate, cookies, cake, maple syrup and french fries, as these our the worst offenders. I’ve done this before with Lil D and it was successful. The key was to make sure he didn’t know about the whole plan.
I know Lil C is a very different child, but I’m keeping my fingers crossed.
Does anyone else have a preschooler with a raging sweet tooth? Have you had any success in curbing it? Any suggestions are MORE than welcome.
