Question: Controlling sweets

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?

I recently spoke to a mom who believed that not putting too many limits on sweets meant it wasn't a big deal to her kids. I think she has a point in that the more limits the more temptation to break the rules.
