Banning Food From Children 2010-11-23 07:00:00

Junk Food Junkies: What Foods Have You Banned?

Rules are meant to be broken, but mama's rules are golden! The Food Revolution has given moms more reason than ever to revamp their family's eating habits, though LilSugar readers were quick to show us where they cheat at the grocery store.

During a weekend playdate, my son asked his friend's mom for cream cheese to put on his bagel. The mother quickly informed us that she does not allow cream cheese in her home. Another friend revealed that the only waffles her tots eat are homemade – the packages found in the frozen food section have never crossed the threshold of her home. What foods are banned from your home?

Soda definitely, white bread, anything with HFCS, and pretty much most processed food. We don't eat any processed meat. We do indulge on occasion and buy treats from the store, but usually they are home made. Most of my meals/baking etc. are made from scratch.

Cream cheese is a little extreme. But I dont buy ANY junk food like chips, cookies or cheese puffs and that sort. Snacks I give my son are pretzels or fruit. And I agree with the homemade waffles! I NEVER buy packaged ready foods. They are SO unhealthy. I NEVER have soda in my house, and I dont buy juices. My son LOVES water :) I cook dinner every night from scratch and bake from scratch, even pancakes and waffles. I like to know that what my children are eating is basic ingredients that have not been inserted with garbage. SO when we go out for ice cream or he gets a treat like candy, its once in a while, or on the weekends so its special.

Artificial cheeses bother me, because they taste horrible. I never buy them, but my hubby has in the past. I don't really totally ban anything. My sons regular diet is healthy and balanced, so I don't mind him having something that isn't exactly good for him every once in a while. He's active and is actually underweight according to his doc, so I'm really not worried about obesity in my house.

Right now, there's a lot that she's not allowed to have, but she's only 15 months old. I don't think she needs to know what chocolate is at this point. We only drink water in this house, and I'd like to keep it this way. There's definitely some stuff (like fried foods) that she'll never be able to get from me, but there is nothing she absolutely can't have if offered (well, there won't be...)

Hmm? What's so bad about cream cheese? I wouldn't allow soda and juice cocktails. All other foods.. yeah the occasional treat is ok in moderation. But it's harder to do that with drinks.

Pop. That's it. My mom kept a steady supply of pop in the house, and as a result, my brothers and I drank 2-3 Cokes a day. As a result, I had horrible teeth and disrupted sleep and it took me YEARS to stop feeling like I needed pop. So, we have a no pop house. Pop is a treat, for special occasions only.
