    A few times a week (hot chips, chocolate, etc) plus a sweet homemade treat everyday if we have them in the house - so prob 3-4 x a week.

    My kids probably have a homemade mini muffin or piece of slice, or banana bread or biscuit most days. Their biggest addiction though is to crackers (like shapes, etc). They rarely have lollies or chocolate, will occasionally have some air-popped popcorn if they are watching a movie or a home ice-cream mango ice block as a special treat.
    But they eat a fairly healthy diet- lots of fruit and veggies, dairy, protein and healthy carbs.
    As far as fast food goes, we rarely have it. Maybe once a month MIL will bring fish and chips over for dinner or we'll take the kids out for sushi.

    Same in our house.

    Today they had a smartie bickie at a cafe while I had a coffee. They get a biscuit such as an oreo or something similar most days. I dont buy chips simply because I would eat the entire packet in one sitting. I make cakes and muffins and bliss balls etc so they have those as well.

    Maccas would be once every 3 or 4 weeks. We might have fish and chips once every couple of weeks. We probably would have take away more often if we had a choice other than fish and chips or pizza.

    I am not strict at all when it comes to birthday parties and what they eat.

    I hope I am raising them to be aware that they should eat healthy food most of the time but that junk food is okay occasionally.

    Wit popcorn are we talking no salt or butter microwave popcorn?
    Or do you buy the corn and pop it on a pot on the stove? I'm confused as to which is healthier.

    Ds is only 13m but he has had choc at Easter and cake on his first birthday and that is it. I try really keep sugar away even though I was fooled by the baby fruit sticks at one stage

    The healthiest pop corn is buying the organic kernels ( most corn is genetically modified these days ) and popping it in an air popper so no oil or butter or salt - stay away from microwave ones, last time I checked they were full of chemicals

    Fast food - never
    Chocolate - once
    Biscuits - only a couple of times from his Pa, he insisted on giving him a sweet biscuit and thinks I'm mean and depriving him
    Home made muffins - maybe once a week, probably less
    Cake - on his birthday

    I gave him half a muesli bar the other day and he almost lost his mind.

    Yummy little balls which are great snacks full of protein and iron

    I use this one - put all ingredients in food processor and add tahini and maple/ rice syrup while motor is running - roll into balls and coat with sesame seeds or coconut!

    Ingredients
    1 cup puffed millet, quinoa or rice
    1/3 cup sesame seeds
    1/3 cup sunflower seeds
    1 cup nuts, unsalted and chopped - almonds, cashews, brazil, hazelnuts, macadamias etc
    1/2 cup sulphur-free dried fruit chopped -apricots, apple, peaches, pear etc
    1/2 cup rice syrup, raw honey or maple syrup
    1/2 cup tahini
    1 cup either sesame seeds or coconut, extra for rolling

    Take away is a bit, we cook more then eating out, but I'm still in to process stopping maccas.

    Lollies, at parties as I don't buy them.
    Chocolate, hardly every but we do have milo in the house.
    My daughter gets popcorn, noodles or chips with lunch.

    They don't eat to much junk, but I thin that's backfiring as when we go to or have parties, they just hang at the junk table and eat and eat and eat..
