    Hard to comment other than just reinforce the good behaviours and play down the bad. Being a good role model is tops and I'm sure you are doing that. The mind can be a tricky thing.

    Just like you, he wants the ice cream! LOL The food hiding sounds like he's mimicking your behavior. If you're hiding "forbidden" foods, he's picked up on that or he doesn't want to get in trouble for having food he knows he shouldn't. He's a child and thinks like one. Yogurt isn't as yummy has ice cream sandwiches. Maybe if you allow him to have one each night, he won't feel like he has to sneak them. And I would recommend the sugar free fat free variety for his sake. They sell locks to childproof your fridge. You may want to try that route. I'm diabetic and low sugar is normal in the morning after not eating all night. Different people are affected differently. At 70 reading, I don't have symptoms, but my diabetic mother does at 80. If the finger pricks hurt him, you can test other places (on the arm for instance) that don't feel so tender afterwards. When my children were younger, I would set their breakfast out on the dining room table for them: a bowl of cereal (cling wrapped) and a piece of fruit. I then had cups of milk in the fridge. My son was 3 1/2 years older than my daughter and could screw the top off and pour in the cereal. Sandwiches were a wholesome breakfast I could make the night before and cold pizza was a favorite. Juice boxes don't need refrigeration. If you find you have to lock the fridge, you can pack a lunch box with his breakfast and use frozen cool packs to keep perishable items at the right temperature. I hope there's something in this post you find helpful! Good Luck...

    You might check with his Dr. about his feelings of needing to hide food. Maybe there is too much restriction for a young child. Don't over react. I hope that you can find a good positive way to deal with the problem. You don't want him to develop eating disorders at this young an age. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.
