I had issues with my in-laws, since my son goes there after school. Since I do appreciate their care and cannot tell them what to do, I have learned to just stress the fact over and over how important it is to me that Danny eats healthy. I allow him ice cream over there, but have asked to limit portion. I used excuses like it's too much sugar before bed, no soda or fast food during the week ( it's a special treat) and the likes. I also bring by fruit when on sale.
My mother-in-law likes Costco, so I went with her a few times and we made some "snack choices" for the kids together, so I had my say.
You can be inventive and not hurt their feelings. For exmaple, for the summer buy them lots of popcicles instead of ice cream. If you approach it right, you might have an allie on your side without them even realizing it, but actually appreciating you for it.
Remember, people are used to different things and when they mean well, it's hard to change their ways by being too straight forward, because they might feel attacked. ( the older people are, the more they get set in their ways, LOL!)
