I am a preschool teacher and there is one child in my classroom who is on a very healthy diet, however, I think that it is doing her more harm than good. The mother does not let her have anything other than what is on her list. While that is good and all, later in life when the child is the one making the decisions, I think it will come back and be a negative thing. All foods are good in moderation. However, the mother is depriving her child of being able to learn this. I honestly think that when the child is older, she will either be anorexic or bulimic. It's not so much about the food, but the way the mother is teaching her about it. I think the mother has the child's best interest at heart, but she is really missing out on the important lessons on nutrition and food habits.

Anon :56, the child does not have an allergy (we have to be notified if she does). The mom stated that her reason for this diet is because she was fat as a child and she doesn't want her child to go through what she did. I understand that, but I think it is more important to talk and model moderation rather than you can't have that or that or that and you must eat this and this and this. The mom examines our menu's on a monthly basis and marks out what she can't have. By the time she is done the whole menu is nearly marked out. She does bring the food in herself, but there are several days that she eats the same thing for breakfast, lunch, and snack for 3 or 4 days straight.
