My girls are obsessed with whether food is ‘healthy’ or ‘a special treat’. Undoubtedly they learnt this from me, just as I learnt from my Mother that you should hide in the pantry when you want to eat food you don’t allow your children. Since we don’t actually have a pantry to hide in (though one day, if we ever get to renovate we will!) I just send my girls outside to ‘check on the chickens’ so I can dip a banana in the last of the chocolate brownie muffin mix……..mmm.
They were pretty good after they were cooked too… but definitely ‘special treat’
