  • Nope. What she wants she gets, to an extent

  • hard candy, and gum is about it. she can have a piece of candy on occasion, and i like for her to try new things so anything else if she wants to try it i'll let her.

  • to an extent is not getting what she wants. What does to an extent mean? Obviously there is a limit to something...

  • When I put "to an extent" I meant like how much of the food. Obviously I won't let her have loads of cheese because she would get bound up.

    Now do you get what I mean ?

  • Juice...he likes it a lot but it doesn't like him back!! Almost always give him the runs.....otherwise we are pretty much anything in moderation.

  • POP!!! I despise it and think it does nothing but bad things. When we are at a family party or something, usually that's all there is to drink, so I always choose the 7up like products. I also try to keep my son away from candy when I can help it. He doesn't eat much anyway, so I'm usually glad when he does eat something.

  • There are foods she hasn't been given to eat far as not letting her have them, I'm not going to go down that road. No food is bad in moderation.

    She is 14 months old, and hasn't had:
    very much juice (she doesn't like it)
    cake (except for her b-day cake)
    ice cream (except for a few bites she had on her b-day)

    Her daddy gave her some cheese puffs once. I preferred that he didn't, but she only had a few. She has hotdogs a couple of times per month. Today she had a few bites of pizza for dinner. Didn't seem to favor it.

  • No soda, or popcorn ( she puts kernals up her nose lol),
    She only gets sweets if its a special occasion or very little. She gets 1 m &m mini when she goes to the potty.
    And tough means such as pork or steak- i dont think she would chew it well.
    I also limit processed foods like lunch meat, bologna, hot dogs etc
