We can let him pout...it won't hurt him! Planning a non-food adventure you two can do together would probably lift his spirits and set a really good example. Way to go for resisting the ice cream! An alternative: You could get a frozen yogurt for many fewer calories and maybe plan this into your day to stay on plan. There are sugar-free options, too. A single scoop of the leaded (1/2 cup) vanilla flavor is also doable and can help keep blood sugar in check if you're a T2diabetic (because of the fat). Last, but not least, you could go with him and take along 2 Andes mints to savor while he eats his ice cream. Keep on Sparking, friend!!
