I know what you mean. I try to maintain a veggie rich, animal free diet, and feed my kids a higher fat, typical 4 food group meal to help them gain and grow. And yet they beg for more chard and broccoli. Argh.. And gawd help me if I snack off their half-full plates. How can they be so thin when I am not.. I guess I just have years of practice.

This is a rough one. Wish my 4-year-old would eat twice as fast to stop me from "helping her" finish.

I get annoyed on days like today at an amusement park. I bought the kids chcken strips and fries, and my preschooler wanted some of my protein bar. It was the only thing I packed healthy for me, so I said no, and she acted like I was the meaner person on the planet...until I got her ice cream later! She is very underweight so we have to be conscious to give her fats...ha!

And here I am feeling bad that I didn't share more of my food with my daughter today. We share when we go out to eat... I gave her a ravioli and then forgot myself and ate the rest without saving another for her.

I'll let them have one bite, because I think I'm saving those few calories. But then that's it! emoticon

I know how you feel! It bothers me too because I try so hard to measure and count everything accurately only to have the kids picking off my plate. Plus they can eat so much that I just can NOT! It drives me crazy to have to share my carefully selected, counted and prepared food. Just go away and eat your chips kid! Lol!!

I will not get diabetes, sleep apnea or another obesity related illness due to my lack of willpower or weakness over food. I am STRONG in mind, body and spirit!

If only I could subtract all the calories my preschooler eats of my food!

If only I could eat a meal and not share a bite.

Or if only I could not feel guilty telling my preschool no you can't have a bite of mine, you have your own..when she is borderline underweight and I am considerably overweight.
