    For some kids, sugar and processed food is just a nightmare. It's not about being on your high horse about nutrition, it's about not trying to deal with a 2 year old who's burning around till midnight, literally!
    I've had that child and she's ten now and quite nice. But **** it was hard...so hard.

    I hope I never come off as holier than thou and some posters can be so dismissive of parents who have to deal with the AnattoB smackdown and yet it swings the other way when if you put something from a packet in your kids lunchbox, you're worse than Donald Trump!

    Rightio I'll just ignore that little debate going on above and add my 2c.

    I don't agree with sweets forming part of a menu at child care. Call me a wowser but I honestly don't. I don't care if it's once a month or once a week. It's a treat and shouldn't be expected.

    I also see that as the fun part of my job as mum. I have to drag kicking and screaming toddlers around all day. I get to be the one who bribes them with fairy bread or whatever I choose. I also don't have a problem with teachers giving my kids an occasional lolly pop or iceblock if they've worked really hard on something.

    The way I see it - you have to be the ball breaker then you get to be the hero too.

    And my kids would live on fruit loops if I let them. In fact there was a brief period where I reckon DD2 might have.

    Then I feel sorry for you all, and your glorious empire cannot last much longer. Fancy not being able to discern linguistically between the glory that is 100's and 1000's and the abomination that is the inferior sprinkle?!

    Usually because it's part of the fee.

    Usually the price of childcare varies due to what is supplied. Some supply food - some supply nappies. Some provide nothing.

    If you have any allergies/intolerances/are veg etc this is communicated to the centre. If you are not happy with the food then yes, pack your own (same with nappies).

    That's a bit rude. Some childcare centres won't let you bring your own food, or at least strongly discourage it and state that if you bring it they won't guarantee they'll pass it on. They provide food and expect parents to go along with that. The fees usually reflect the fact that they provide all food.

    DS hovers around at the food tables at parties and would eat 10 cupcakes if I let him. His party bag is demolished before we get home.

    DD2 will choose the healthy option every time.

    Three kids all raised the same, all totally different in regards to food.

    Here's my 3 at the Bunnings cafe. OMG is that refined sugar 2 of my children are consuming mother of the year right here

    You can see my youngest eating fruit salad. This is what she chose.

    Here's my DD2 ditching her lollipop for celery.

    Attachment 78114

    She does this all the time.
    My kids are so different too.

    DS6 prefers to stick to crap. Loves nuggets and fish fingers and whatever else so I learned to make my own pretty quickly. Hates veggies unless they are honey ones (we don't need to put honey on them, just call them that).

    DS4 is a fruit fiend. I put down groceries and ran to the bathroom about a year ago. He ate 2 bunches of bananas. Seriously like 16 of them. I hide bananas now. We got fruit in today and he grabbed 2 pears and a bag of grapes before I even had a chance to put it away. If I let him, he would eat fruit constantly.

    DD3 loves cucumber, rice, noodles (udon etc) and chicken. She will collect lollies and cakes if she sees them but won't really eat them. Just hoards them. I'm assuming because she sees other kids grab them.

    DS1.5 He is just the little Hoover. He will eat whatever is on his plate. No discrimination from him.

    Well considering I pay $100 a day in childcare fees, I think it's more than justifiable that I expect my child to be fed wholesome nutritious food. Why would I pay $100 a day and supply food? That's just silly ..

    I know this.

    To me it makes much more sense to pack your own food - you know what your child is eating, instead of having to stress and get upset about a menu
