new stuff to worry about worrying about
If you worry your picky toddler isn't eating enough and you push snacks on them, you'll override their "satiety signal" and your kid could wind up chubbier by age three. So says a new study. But seriously? Like there's not enough to worry about, now parents have to feel guilty for encouraging their kids to eat. It reminds me of War of the Roses scene when Kathleen Turner gives her kids candy. "I read that kids who are deprived of sweets and candies all the time, they get obsessed by it and they turn out to be obese. Kids who get it all the time, it's no big deal, they turn out normal." The kicker is her kids get fat. You can't win for trying.
