“My friend just called me and said her daughter was not allowed to go to recess today because she broke the rule of bringing an “unhealthy” food to snack. She brought a homemade chocolate chip cookie.”
What Parents are Saying…
I get to be a mom, not a food cop!
Another huge food breakthrough!
She’s a different child, and I’m a different mother.
I can look forward to dinner again!
Her obsession with food is gone, and my obsession with it all is too. We are both so much happier.
