    The nation’s sweet tooth is also letting many down, with one in five having chocolate or sweets daily.
    this is the what amazed me here, what are adults doing eating sweets as treats and snacks ? Actually the whole concept of snacking and fast food, it’s ruining the health of so many, you can’t go anywhere without people shoving crisps and biscuits at you

      Agree. What happened to the no eating between meals rule? With all the snacking and fridge-cruising, kids don’t seem to have any hunger tolerance. Hungry? Fill your gob with rubbish. We’d go for hours without food so as not to spoil the dinner.

        hunger makes a great sauce, especially back before Ireland rediscovered herbs,
        sure everything is instant gratification,

        The rule in our house is this:

        Eat your three meals and shut up. You want a snack, find some fruit or yogurt. There’s no shortage of it in our house.

        We do have a small desert every evening. Sometimes it’s something like stewed apple and a drop of custard. Sometimes it’s a biscuit or two with a cup of tea. I find it cuts out the cravings for sweet things considerably, especially with the young wan. She’s very good now. Rarely asks for sweets. But I had to fight her on it, plenty of times because she’s a child and of course she wants sweeties.

    actually while I’m ranting, it’s beyond irresponsible, bargaining with treats for good behavior wtf
    it’s child abuse teaching/letting your kid eat like that and possibly causing obesity and other issues
    rant over, do I feel better nope
    do you reckon a company offering affordable healthy school lunches in fun biodegradable boxes with maybe games on or something would work in Ireland ?
