Maybe that's why my favorite dinner in college was Lucky Charms. Sure, I knew eating two bowls (and following up with a heaping bowl of frozen yogurt) was more sugar than any person needed, but it tasted good. Who was going to stop me? I did eventually stopped because good sense won out in the end.
Now as a parent I wonder if keeping my child away from foods like sweet cereal actually keeps him from wanting it down the road? I am not opposed to treats, but will banning something make your kids over-indulge later? How do you see it?
