The Leftovers In My Chidren'S Plate Is Garbage




I make it a rule to never pick at my children's leftovers in their plate. If it is something that I think they will eat later, I wrap it and put it in the fridge for them...otherwise I throw it in the garbage. THEIR food is not part of my daily meal plan and picking at a french fry here and there or finishing a half eaten oreo cookie add up to extra unwanted and unaccounted for calories. We wouldn't pick at an adult's why pick at our kids plates.
