My parents had to hide the jar of cashews.
Today, I have to hide the jar of cashews. Yay, progress.
Looking back at childhood diet I am struck, not by the attitude toward sweets per se, but by how indistinguishable the supposed healthy alternatives really were. Cookies bad, eat your "honey-glazed" cereal instead...or waffles with margarine and fake syrup. Can't eat ice cream for lunch, but a big glass of milk & a sandwich with faux-ww bread, peanut butter and sugary jelly are A-OK. There wasn't really any difference between meals and dessert apart from the packaging and presentation.
