I want my kid to eat well but I also don't want to be fascist about it. I had fun growing up and I don't want to demonize candy, cake and ice cream. On the flip side, the marketing is so much more crazy than when I was a kid. What kind of guidelines do you use to encourage better eating and limit sweets?
