What does your little one consider to be "treats"?

This is what my two year old, Emma, calls "treat"...

She will go into the low cupboard, and there among maybe a box of sugary cereal, (and once in a blue moon) a bag of chips and popcorn, help herself to a Wasa bread when she is hungry. We go through these things like crazy!

Now, if you are familiar with Wasa bread, they aren't exactly what you would describe as a treat, especially not through a child's eye. They are quite hard and taste similar to cardboard (or what I would imagine cardboard to taste like). But, they are loaded with fiber! Hooray for poop!

This is one of my proudest moments as a mom. This is a moment when I realize that eating healthy for myself actually DOES rub off on my children. Of COURSE they'd still rather eat a bag of M&Ms over asparagus any day, but small steps are good enough for me!

Funny about that as Lachlan loves these same crackers. Could be that I like them but Davyn seems to think they are good too.
