Why You Should Stop Giving Sweets as a Reward to Your Child?


Being a parent is one of the most beautiful challenges in life. We all wish the best for our children in every aspect of their lives, yet when it comes to nutrition we are the ones developing and shaping their eating habits from day one. Healthy food, plenty of fruits and vegetables should be on the daily menu, however avoiding sugar is almost impossible nowadays. Can you imagine a birthday party without a cake, soda and chips? Can you tell a child not to eat them at the birthday party? Yes, we admit that this could be challenging, especially when kids are throwing tantrum or refuse eating the veggies and for the sake of having some peace, often treating them a candy or chocolate is the way plenty would choose. Of course there will be exceptions when a child will have some sweets, however limiting the amount to the minimum is the best you can do. If giving sweets for a job well done or to calm a child down becomes a regular practice, then there is a possibility for developing eating disorder and refusal of eating healthy food.
