SO for dinner I gave my daughter hotdog bits, whole wheat crackers and carrot sticks...

she put her plate in the sink and said she was all done but now she is asking for yogurt. I told her no because she didn't eat her carrots. (she is 3) Should I give her the yogurt? I mean it's not like she asked for a cookie...

  • the kind of yogurt I usually buy can actually be used as a dip for carrots, lol!!! I do buy the standard kid kids sometimes but it's offered as a dessert just like a piece of cake would be, since that is really what they are. A teeny cup of something w/ like 30g of sugar should not be a normal everyday food.

  • Eh, I would. Yogurt is a pretty decent after dinner snack. Like you said, it's not a cookie!

  • well I guess it depends on your definition of yogurt, IMO! Like dora or trix crap? has more sugar than a stack of oreo's. plain non fat sweetened w/ a little honey or fresh fruit? no big whoop

  • Imo if she has to finish her plate in order to get a cookie, you're setting her up for obesity. Food shouldn't be an award or a punishment. So yes absolutely you should give her the yogurt.
