I know this sounds mean, but let me explain. I have neighborhood children in and out quite a bit to visit my little one. I recently noticed that whenever they visit they all go straight to the fridge to grab juice boxes and often ask for a snack (including my own). It really didn't bother me until I started paying more attention. Are they doing this at everyone's houses?
If so, what are they eating and how much? I have no clue and realized that neither do the parents of the children that I am feeding. One juicebox contains anywhere from 60-110 calories. This can add up over time.
So, please, please, please do not feed the children! Give them a nice glass of water when they are thirsty and if they are truly hungry hand them a nice juicy apple. They really won't mind and neither will their parents.
