When I was younger my mom used to add a little sugar to my cereal. She used to make me grilled cheese in the pan with butter. I used to eats apple slices with cheese (the good kind that come in blocks). When I was sad she didn't give me frozen yogurt she would take me into the kitchen and we would bake chocolate chip cookies together and laugh. She would make hotdogs for lunch or dinner at times and I had at least one juice box a day we never checked sugar content. Maybe it wasn't the healthiest but these are things ill do with my kids.
Do you remember these days when we weren't afraid of extra calories and we just were content?
What things did you do that you will do with your kids even if its not the greatest thing for your health?

Oh, you mean back when children actually got exercise and socialized with each other ? LOL I make my children grilled cheese! We love grilled cheese! I don't know if my parents did anything special for me... I make treats for my kids, like brownies and cookies and fudge..

Apples and cheese? Yuck!

But no I don't count calories. My kids eat nasty things like hot dogs and boxed mac&cheese. Sugary cereal. Juice boxes. Etc.

I'm not too worried about it, I came out just fine, far from overweight or unhealthy.

It's the health nazis that ruine it for everyone. You know the women that are anti butter, fat, processed food and sugar. I know some moms now a days that would have a heart attack if they heard of all this.

My parents never did anything special with me.  I do most of what you said and more.  We love grilled cheese in a pan with butter, and making cookies, cakes, etc.
