If candy wasn’t so bad for my kids, I would let them consume it 24/7. Nothing seems to quiet a whinning child as quickly and effectively as candy. Now imagine your child sick at home and whinning and having the amazing ability to say, “Hey, I’ve got a great idea, why don’t you have a lollipop?” Your child will look at you with questioning eyes.

Do you remember the last time you got some fruit and how quickly it went bad? Many of us choose to bypass perishable items such as fruits and instead settle for chips or cookies.
