My Little Snacker Gets Caught in the Act...

I've blogged before about how Chris explained to Karenna that commercials, cartoon characters, and product placement grocery stores are designed to make junk food more appealing to kids.

Well, today we were at my sister-in-law's bridal shower.  Of course when there are aunts around to spoil her (see Aunt Cathie), Karenna will run off and seek their guardianship.

Today was no different.  She went to the guest of honor, Aunt Steffie.  When I stopped to check on her, I noticed the plate she conned Aunt Steffie into getting her: crackers, cheesies, chips, and buried somewhere was an applie slice and another piece of fruit.  I then made sure that her plate included the main course and veggies as well.


When it was time for Steffie to open her gifts, Karenna started lurking by the junk food again.  While I don't mind a snack or two, especially on special occasions, Karenna had her fill.

"Karenna, if you're still hungry why don't you have fruit?" I suggested.  "Don't you remember Daddy telling you how bad those chips and things are for you?"

"Yes," she said, "but they tricked me."
