Why do people consider giving their kids crap "a treat"?

You're just glorifying junk food and making it absurd for them to think about natural delicious food when they do want a treat.


Flavored corn syrup , mechanically engineered lunch meats, fake sugar, and edible cardboard are not treats.



Chocolate covered strawberries, lemon sorbet, fruit and yogurt in layers, frozen blueberry lemonade, those are treats... Teach your kids the good life, not how to get fat.

Oh ffs, mind your own business.

Kids aren't going to get fat because they have ice cream, candy or other junk foods occasionally.

I certainly don't consider those things treats, but I couldn't care less about how others view those things.

We teach the kids that "a treat" is "something out of the ordinary". So many times a treat is going to a different park or eating our lunch on a picnic blanket in the living room.
