It seems really easy to blame Mr. Softee here, doesn’t it folks? But I won’t. I’ve lived too long with Mr. Softee and all the good treats he provides.
Before I get into lists and long explanations, I’ll say two things and then give you enough time to get mad at me:
- Too much of anything isn’t good for you. There is nothing wrong with balance. Give the kids some treats…especially if they deserve it.
- If PARENTS made their kids run and play and do some form of exercise instead of sitting in front of a TV all day, maybe they won’t have to worry about the foods they eat (or don’t eat).
