My son can't get enough blueberries. Every time we go to the store he goes crazy for them. Is this normal?

I thought you were going to say that you had wild blueberries growing in your yard, or something like that. (We have blueberries all over our property)
As previous post says, just stop buying them. If you can't handle the temper tantrum in the store (and believe me, sometimes I can't either!!) Then you'll have to get sneaky! When he's not looking either pull them back out of the cart, or at the end (during check-out) just slip them to the clerk with a whisper saying you really don't need these today. I admit, I have done that before. Usually with Junk food or toys. After we get home if my kids say "where is this or that" I act like "Oops we must have forgot it at the store". Then they forget all about it.

...... PS..... I do have to second the "blue berries are really good for you" sentiment. I wish my kids would eat them more since they are so full of antioxidants.

for like 2 months my son wanted only grapes. I let him eat as many as he wanted because I was just glad that he wasn't begging for gummy bears like all his friend in the neighborhood were. After he had his fill, he didn't want any more. Now he is craving oranges. (maybe for the natural sugar and vit C?) I believe your body craves what it needs, but most of us have learned to fill that craving with artificial sugars and refined sugars when really we SHOULD be eating the natural fruits instead. I'm sure after a while my son will grow tired of oranges too, then hopefully he'll want to eat another kind of fruit and keep passing on those gummy bears!!
