    I think the point of this was, to control your portion sizes and overeating, don't eat the extras. If u choose to allow your children to eat of your just don't over eat.

    Well, if not your children, then how about your spouse? Even dessert which is harder to let go of.

    Is that really teaching your children good table manners? Is it teaching them how to avoid weight problems in their own future?
