    Every now and then... Every few days I suppose (?) I give him a little packet of smarties, or a piece of chocolate for a special treat. Always when he is good. I don't bribe him with sweets although it's happened a couple of times such as 'if you do this or that, you can have a chocolate when we get home'. He says 'ooooh' and does said request immediately!

    My kids have treats everyday but they have a strange idea of what they consider a treat.

    They probably 4 times a week have an youghurt ice cream (which easiyo yoghurt i made and then froze)
    They love cheese bikkies which are healthy and consider them a big treat
    I make apricot balls which have nothing bad and they think they are awesome

    Etc so they have treats most days but they are always something healthy. I don't use unhealthy things as 'treats' because I'd rather that be something that we have occasionally but don't call it a treat if that makes sense

    Default Treats - how often does your toddler get them and what do you consider a treat?

    We consider all packaged/pre made food treats in our house. Dd1 who is 2yo, gets a muesli bar once a week ish. No lollies, chocolate, donuts, hot chips from us ever. I do bake heaps tho and she is allowed biscuits and cake but no icing.

    Only drinks allowed are water and milk.

    ILs don't listen to us so dd1 gets crap from them all the time. Luckily we only see them twice a year.

    Default Treats - how often does your toddler get them and what do you consider a treat?

    More than I would like. He gets marshmallows and little chocolate ducks when he has babycinos with his grandmother on Mondays - plus she gives him bacon, and the odd biscuit, etc. On Tuesdays he hangs out with my dad who gives him half a Tim Tam at 4pm. His dad gives him bits of toast with jam all the time, and on Sundays I make a cake or biscuits for afternoon tea and he will have some of that. Also often DH gives him some sweet dessert after dinner like custard, etc.

    I don't really give him treats myself but it does add up.

    Sure it's 2 cups of muesli (or can just be rolled oats)
    1 and a 1/4 cups of dried apricots (you can dry them yourself )
    a big squirt of honey (we use local honey)

    Chuck it all in the food processor and whizz it for about 2minutes you will see when it's ready it starts to form a big ball. Take it out and roll in coconut or you can just wet your hands and roll into balls without coconut and store in the fridge. My kids love them and they are healthy (well i consider it healthy there is no added sugar and it's certainly 100% better then prepackaged apricot snacks

    Default Treats - how often does your toddler get them and what do you consider a treat?

    We don't really give "treats" as such, DH and I will only eat naughty food when he's in bed ( chocolate etc) as we have always let him have whatever we eat so try and only eat homemade food at home in front of him and we don't eat fast food ( maybe the odd Thai takeaway once a month)
    , if I make some ice cream and decide to have some I'll offer him
    Some, same with any cakes/muffins/ice blocks I make but that's maybe once a week or if we have guests over!

    I must admit I was worried last weekend as it was his party and I made so much party food I hoped he didn't think it was a regular thing but he was fine!

    We go out one night a week for dinner and a few times a week for lunch so if we get dessert he shares and when we go out for dinner he is allowed his own "bubble water" which is just plain mineral water!
