Some of the answers to this question: http://www.cafemom.com/answers/691591/Would_you_rather_your_child got me thinking about something. When your child is at a friend's house, how do you control what he or she eats? Let's say, for sake of discussion, that we're talking about kids who don't need Mom to be there with them. And let's leave allergies out of the equation as well. Obviously if your child is allergic to peanut butter, you're going to inform the parents of his or her friends of that allergy. What do you do to ensure they don't eat "shit in a can"? Do you check out the cabinets at their house to find out what kind of food choices that family makes? What would you do if you found something on your list of "do not eat"? What if you found out your child ate something you disapprove of while he or she was there? What would you do?
I realize I run the risk of being called a troll, or an asshole, or some other term that I'm sure I'll think of later, but I'm curious about this, so I'm going to go ahead and post it. Obviously...because it's been posted.
