Just because I "preach" nutrition in kids doesn't mean I never let my kids indulge in a sweet treat! When giving them goodies, I do try to do it the best way I can. Instead of buying pre-made sweets, I make my own from scratch as often as possible.
For instance, a Little Debbie brownie has a long list of ingredients that include preservatives and artificial colors/flavors. I can make my own from scratch, and I can recognize and pronounce all of the ingredients, they taste better, and they have less fat/calories per serving!
Cookie dough is easy to make in large batches and freeze for future use. Instead of buying packaged cookies full of junky ingredients, I like to make whole wheat chocolate chip cookies.YUM!
The list goes on and on - making almost anything from scratch is better than buying it pre-made, and me makes me feel a little better about indulging the kids every now and then.
