I mean, come on...you guys are uptight about a little one eating a cheeto? What do you think would happen to them if they had the occassional cookie or cup of hot cocoa? You never EVER give them a sweet treat? I think that would be cruel and unusual punishment,lol.
I wouldn't give it to them on a daily basis, but come on, the way some of you sound its like you think they will turn orange and float away or get some kind of terrible disease if they eat something like a piece of a candy bar or something like that.
Why?What do you think will happen to them?

I have actually had people say some pretty stupid things to me on here because I didn't see anything wrong with letting a baby have soda. Did I let mine have a 2 liter? no. Did I let them have a small cup every now and then? Sure. It actually settled my oldeststomach when she was a baby. She would scream because her tummy hurt. Give her a couple of ounces of sprite and she was a happy baby. I had people freak out at a bday party because I put icing on my finger and let my infant suck it off. You would have thought I gave him the whole cake and ice cream the way they went on about it. My sister doesn't even let her 2 year old have sweets. It's crazy. That kid is on a diet most supermodels are on. All 5 of my kids are alive and well, and not overweight btw.

Why feed kids unhealthy food? When they are fed healthy food they like healthy food.

ETA* As long as you teach good eating habits, importance of staying active, and moderation, you shouldn't have a problem with your kid becoming a YooHoo addict. It's when all of that is left out that there is a problem.
