- Let the kids eat it however they want
- Then go back to their normal eating plan
You actually don’t have to manage things that happen once per year.
Manage the every day in between.
Just my perspective, from working with adult clients for so many years. The dumbest thing ever is to waste energy managing one-off events. They just don’t matter. At all.
Edit: Have already gotten hate mail LOL
And most of it struck me as “here’s how to make your kid afraid of sugar” kinds of stuff.
Vs. “lets teach your kids about moderation and enjoying holidays” or “lets focus on the day to day and not the once in a while”
So this isn’t an actual recommendation for *your kids*, of course you know better than I do.
This is more for all of the trainers who are trying to give their clients completely bizarre expectations about holidays and food.
