Mrs.Salz post on toddler quitting sugar got me motivated to do the same. I left my 27 month old at my MILs house for an hr while I took my 2 wk old to a doctors appointment. When I came back, I walked in on my 2 yr old finishing a whole Hershey's chocolate bar. Eating one of those makes ME sick. And dd pretty much ate it for a meal. So I told dh about it and we decided have dd go cold turkey on the sugar. We didn't realize how much candy she was actually eating!! We knew she had some every day, but we didn't realize how it was affecting her until we actually stopped to think about it. Too much sugar makes her downright mean and full of attitude.
day 1 was a little bit horrible. She was moody and going through withdrawals. She was asking for candy all day long.
Today was day 2. Dd was getting cranky on the way back home from church so I gave her the snack bag. Little did I know what was hidden at the bottom of it (from another day). Dd found it. A little stick of "Bit O Honey". She seriously reminded me of an addict the way she was holding onto it and trying to eat the candy THROUGH the wrapper. :/
Excuse the fuzziness.
Aside from the first bout of moodiness, she does seem to be doing better already. Time will tell :)
