    Default Sugar

    Hi all,
    I am desperately wanting to dramatically reduce the sugar and dairy intake of our family - and this time of the year is the worst to try and do such a thing! We are a healthy family but the treats creep in more frequently around Christmas - and I am really seeing the consequences - especially in kids that cant sleep well at night. I am keen to hear from people who have walked this journey and how you have managed to communicate your dietary changes to well meaning people who offer sugar to kids all the time! TIA

    I just tell them sorry they can't have sugar- picture feeding gremlins after midnight most people just have a chuckle and say no worries!

    A friend watched them last week for a day and night and half a day and she gave them sherbet she will never doubt my advise not to feed them sugar again!

    Well, I have it "easy" with regards to others because my son has so many food intolerances, sucrose being one of them - so my well meaning family are too scared to feed him anything without checking with me

    I wouldn't wish allergies or intolerances on anyone, but I must say they are convenient excuses to avoid rubbish foods -- could you maybe tell a fib & say it's at the advice of a dietician??
