BTW In Mexico a traditional snack is having citrics with salt, I remember those long days of summer spent with half a lime in one hand and a salt shacker in the other one, and nothing ever happened to us. Why do I worry so much about the guidelines now? I wonder...
You are right you know. I was studying cereal packets yesterday, dd1 has gone off Weetabix, and getting all harrumphy about the sugar contents. Then recalled me and my brother and sister wolfing down Sugar Puffs etc when we were little and we turned out ok!
oh dear - I took the kids bowling last week and decided (rather stupidly - have never been bowling before so I put this down to being a novice) to eat lunch at the on site Wimpy. I don't know what was in their chicken nuggets but it made McDonalds look like haute cuisine. They were so foul, they even smelt funny and I could see blobs of gelatine (or something else aarrghh) in the middle. First and last time I ever eat at Wimpy (was convinced we'd all come down with food poisoning afterwards).
I find the best of those M&S kids meals are the vegetable pasta type ones (ds loves the cheese and tomato ravioli).
