    You can use any, really bad for you but delicious, chocolate based biscuits. Mint slice are my favourite for this though.

Lunch usually what ever I give him but only few spoonfuls, dinner the same, few spoonfuls. We eg maccas probably 3 meals a week (lunch or dinner) we are out everyday and we work from home with deadlines to meet and sometimes I forget to cook or left it too late really Need to figure a better system out. He lives popcorn so we get the packet ones that's already popped! He loves crackers! The Fantastic ones, he can have a while packet! We don't offer chocolate or biscuits it lollies but he gets a lot of that when he goes to his nanas house which I really don't like but have been told off when I said something he loves packet chips and hot hips though.
    I just find it so so hard to stay healthy and stay within budget, it's just too easy and cheap to eat junk.
    Its ok. It was like that with ds1 when he was younger. Finding time, sticking to a budget, finding foods he liked, urgh! One step at a time is the best advice I can give.

    Just a tip - try avoid those fantastic brand crackers, they contain MSG , not good especially if he eats a lot- try the vita wheat multi grain rice crackers instead -no MSG , no chemicals

    A norty adult version of a bliss ball is 150g of pitted dried dates, 450g good quality dark chocolate, 210g coconut cream. Blitz dates in a food processor, combine chocolate and coconut cream and melt, mix with chopped dates and refrigerate until firm but not too hard! Roll into balls then through whatever suits you, crushed nuts, coconut etc.

    So delish!

    I feel bad too lol DS will get a small treat daily. Something like tiny teddies, home made choc cake or bickie, small icy pole . I make my own salt and butter free air popcorn and he loves plain multigrain Sakatas as snacks also.

    He will get lollies or chocolate weekly. But he's happy with a very small amount of either (2 lollies or a small bite size Milky Way)

    He gets hot chips every few weeks. We only eat the odd (like every few weeks, as DH and I hate take away) grilled fish and chips, gourmet burgers or nandos which DS doesn't eat any of - just the chips.

    He eats loads of fruit but stuff all veggies. Which frustrates me! Me I'm sure in time he will enjoy them more. As long as he eats his protein and calcium I'm happy lol

    Given what people call junk food I would say daily, and probably more then once a day eg a packet of tiny teddies in his lunch box with fruit and salad sandwich, then at home in the afternoon a packet of shapes or plain popcorn.

    Take away maybe a couple of times per month depending on what we are doing.

    I became obese because I was deprived of so many types of food as a child so I am very careful not to create the same unhealthy relationship with food for my son. I know he would be better off with homemade treats/snacks but I do not have the time nor the inclination. A balanced daily diet is what I aim for and what I think I achieve most, but not all, days.
