In brief: Sweets not problem
Children savor things given as treats because they taste good & are celebrated.
When given @ every meal, the child begins to feel a sense of entitlement & the dietary deva's are created.Kids don't need sweets @ every meal or once a day. They should be part of balanced nutrition, not a reward. Sweets don't cause obesity or diabetes.Poor dietary practices and over indulgence may do so eventually.
