Fairy bread for afternoon tea at 2y olds childcare? ??
At the end of the day IMO, it's irresponsible to be handing out chocolate to little kids as a teacher in a classroom setting as praise or a job well done! Id rather my daughter get a sticker or a stamp than a lump of sugar.
You may not think so. But I do.

I can't believe people think a 4.5yr old would turn down chocolate/lollies. Until you've seen a complete meltdown from a reaction to artificial colours /preservatives you have no idea how bad it can be. It terrifies me that my DS will be given something that will trigger a complete meltdown.

I'm all for nutrition.
I just wonder how many parents worry so much about obesity that they don't realize they might be shaping an unhealthy relationship with food at the other end of the spectrum for their child.

It's great that you're able to have the time to make home made things and have your child eat all wealthy foods, but it's not so simple for everyone.
My GP at my DDs 4 year check up sees how stressed I am about her eating at each appointment so he asked me to go through her diet and though it's not the best and her only veggie intake is through rafferty pouches and pumpkin scones he said to stop stressing about her eating and continue as we are. That withholding treats isn't going to make her eat better, nor is it going to make her sick.
I know there is an obesity problem even amongst kids but it's generally when kids every single meal is sugar and trans fat laden, not because kids have a sweet and sugary treat every afternoon. Lighten up everyone!

I also imagine that these small chocolate treats are not being given to children as young as 5, more the older primary school students - am I right @Tamtam?
