I dont understand. Your sons SCHOOL sent a note home saying that he was overweight?!?!?!?! I think that is hideous and not because Im fat, because how is his weight ANY issue of theirs?

I believe it's a local authority initiative that is designed to identify whether children, or rather their parents, have the information about how to ensure they supply a healthy diet to some degree.  Obese children are far more likely to develop diabetes and other health issues, let alone the social problems they'll encounter when going to secondary school which is this year for my son's class.

They cannot force anybody to do anything but the parents of children that are identified as overweight to obese, are given information about portion sizes and food types that will improve their child's health.  I have to say it taught me a thing or 2, like a portion should be roughly the size of your fist. Which is handy (no pun intended) as I have Hulk hands.

In all honesty there is a section of our society that don't give a damn about what experts say about nutrition, and feed their children on the same crap that they eat.  This was highlighted when Jamie Oliver tried to overhaul our school dinner system and some mothers refused to acknowledge it and were filmed taking orders and handing out whatever the kids wanted to eat.



My daughter would eat nothing but chocolate given half a chance.  Seriously.
Don't put off until tomorrow, what you can put off until the day after.

That's exactly what happens with my daughter. Chocolate and in 2nd place ice cream. (Who can blame her really  :D)
Sometimes I don't know how to handle that craving of her. We negotiate every piece of chocolate on a daily basis.  :-\

My daughter's attitude toward food improved immensely once I got her to cook with me.  The last thing she was going to do was leave her own food, as she insisted that everyone else eat every last morsel. 

You gotta love reverse psychology.

My daughter helps me cook when is something that involves dough (pasta, bread, etc) and deserts. If it's vegetables or meats she abandons me.

I'm drooling!

I ate a couple of hake empanadas (leftover of last night's dinner). They were great but that was 6 hours ago and I'm famished right now!

Beef empanadas (traditional on this particular day in my country). The thing is it's 12:30 and I'm barely starting (I have the dough ready though). When I'm finished it'll be dinner time.

Depending on many things they can be either very good or impossible to eat.

We ate at 2:30. Not that late.  :D
