One of my mommy friends made a wonderful comment - How would you feel if you never got to taste a wonderful red Lindt ball chocolate ball or a wonderful Cadbury's chocolate or an ice cream - as an adult you probably would feel think - "AW - I wish i could have some" - Well I know I would... (Being on diet permanently I know the feeling and I constantly feel like that)
In South Africa there really is no limit to E-numbers and brightly coloured shocking pink or burnt orange drinks and deep blue ice creams. Every where you go when I'm in South Africa lovely people give (not offer - give ) my kids bright red sweets and blue ice cream that stains their lips for a good day afterwards it makes them have mini tantrums and run around like made creatures... ( there is very little regulation when it comes to food ingredients in SA (South Africa)) Now here is the trick - I really HATE ( I cringe internally every time ) these side affects of these wonder foods but if I dont let them try sweets and have a little fun within a controlled environment how will they be when my back is turned... They would sneak off , hide sweets and possibly hord them - becoming obsessive and manic with these forbid contrabands - they would never speak with me about them - at least I'm creating dialog about about sore tummies from to much and going crazy from these substances of "joy".
