    The Sakata plain ones are ok too

    And I think there is a microwave one out now that has no added anything at all.

    Also, you can pop plain kernels in a brown paper bag in the microwave!

    DS1 probably has a few "bad" things each day like a sweet biscuit or a milo dairy snack. He loves snacking on air popped popcorn ,corn thins with peanut butter, grapes, apples, watermelon ,vita wheats. If we go out on the weekend we will have pasta, he will share our pasta with some garlic bread then maybe have a ice cream cone. He cant eat chicken meat so it can be a bit tricky going out. If we have soft drink as a treat he can have a sip. We rarely have chocolate but if we do he can have some.

    I personally dont agree with eating "bad food" in front of kids but denying them to eat it.

    Takeaway dinner - never

    Cookies at cafe (e.g., gingerbread man) - once a week

    Marshmallow at cafe (several times a week, as they give her one when I get a coffee!)

    Fast food - a couple of times in her life

    Hot chips - once a fortnight-ish

    Crisps/ sweets/ cake - only at parties (anything from twice a week this week, to a few weeks without one)

    Home made biscuits - once a week

    Drinks other than milk/ water - never

    We're not really strict with it, but we don't buy junk food to have in the house. I don't worry about her eating anything though, as her diet is healthy most of the time. When writing it down it doesn't look too bad, but sometimes I feel like a lot of occasions cluster together.

    Way too often for my liking! But being 30 weeks pregnant, I'm quite lazy at the moment. So to avoid a tantrum, I'm "giving in" a lot more than I usually would!

    DS has takeaway once a week for dinner, a cheeseymite scroll 2-3 times a week + chocolate or ice-cream for dessert every night (if he eats a satisfactory amount of dinner)

    My DD isn't too bad because she doesn't like chocolate and lollies so we don't tend to buy them. Plus DH and I are both bad with food so we don't keep biscuits or anything in the house.

    But, things like hot chips she goes crazy for! She probably has KFC or something once every two weeks maybe while we're out. She normally gets a slushie or something when we shop on weekends too.

    We have a "junky" dinner once a week too, where I make pizza or mexican at home.
