    Do you really think a 4 or 5 or 6 year old has the brain maturity to show that kind of restraint and NOT eat chocolate that's sitting right in front of them? Like really?

    I think that poster was saying she was year 5 so that's 10/11 years old.

    And for what it's worth, my youngest son gets a packet of smarties and just sorts them into colours first and then lines them up from biggest to smallest and he's four *shrug* he's also a bit of a nerd 😂

    Sorry, off topic.

    Did I say that 4 and 5 year olds were being given smarties for maths?

    My experiences were Year 5 so age 10/11 which is a big difference.

    Most Year 5 kids are still going to chomp on smarties regardless of what their parents say,

    Sorry. But no. I've been teaching for a number of years. And I've had plenty of kids I've checked with about eating chocolate. .. and they always refuse.
    Yep. They don't eat it if they know they shouldn't.

    What you were talking about is irrelevant because you quoted me roughly around (a few pages back) where we were talking about much younger kids than 10 or 11 being given chocolates in class.

    Who gave you power to decide what's irrelevant and not?

    If you want to get pedantic about things the sentence that I quoted you said "So you give kids chocolate in a classroom setting without parents consent?"

    No reference there to younger children what so ever. You misread my post - accept it.

    Thing is so many parents who don't give their kids any sugar or bad fats mostly claim their kids don't even like sugary things and never go near them at parties etc.

    So whilst I agree most kids don't show restraint, those with perfect little eaters claim quite the opposite.

    Actually I think it was me who originally said about chocolate in class. And I was asked and clarified that I was indeed referring to older primary children.
