dd is at grandparents for lunch, She ate two pieces of carrot and a yorkshire pudding from her lunch. Left the rest as she said she wasnt hungry, just come back and she has eaten (less than 20mins after lunch) icecream with marshmellows and wafer, cinder toffee in chocolate and a twix angry

Just gone mad at them , they think its funny, dd is big for her age and needs to eat properly not crap like this.

who fed her all the junk? her grandparents?

how old is she?

if she eats like that every day, it is an issue, as a one off treat at the Grandparents, i;d be inclined to let it slide

of course ice cream and wafers and chocolate is more appealing to a child than a big roast dinner!

if she was fed all this at her grandparents after refusing to eat her dinner I'd be cross with the grandparents too. I don't think children should be given treats after refusing to eat any proper dinner

shes 6 and they have her after school as well so i am guessing she does the same then,
the thing that annoys me is I have terrible problems with dental stuff now as a result of the amount of crap I ate when little. I am trying to do better for dd so she doesnt have the pain I have had.

I have had blows out before and it stopped for a while as when we lived far away she used to go for a week and they fed her those three for a £1 bags of jelly sweets from asda everytime she went age 2 at the time angry

so they are firm believers in food being the only or the best treat for a child.. if your DD is big for her age, then i think you need to encourage them to offer her proper meals, fresh fruit and for treats,. things like stickers, colouring stuff, books etc etc . if she is there a lot then this you can;t let it slide, must be very furstrating

amd you also need to talk to DD about eating her meals

and even though they came to the dentist when he told them her teeth might need coating to protect the new ones because of jelly crap they still think its funny.

I have talked with dd, she eats fantastically at home and at school. They were very strict with me as a child both in food and behaviour and I was a pretty good kid. Now when I complain they say its payback for when I was a kid hmm

Who bought the icecream, marshmallows, cinder toffee and Twix? hmm

then you might need to consider someone else having her after shcool so she does not have 5 days a week of eating crap

Well not me squeaky! I am presuming they were in the fridge, this is after my mum saying that we would have to be careful with dd or she would be fat and get stick at school hmm

I give her tea after school but now wondering if she is getting this much crap before I pick her up.
