Let's stop making dessert such a big deal!

Let's face it, our kids are going to eat sugary foods at some point whether we want them to or not so we may as well set the stage for success by teaching them healthy ways to approach sweets.

First of all, let's try not to use dessert as a reward. Doing so will drive an unhealthy craving to eat, whether they're hungry or not. The message becomes dessert is special and hard to get, which will make them focus on it crave it all the more!
