I run a family daycare. I provide healthy and nutritious snacks and parents send lunches for their kids. Oftentimes they are NOT healthy (or as healthy as I would like them to be) but it's THEIR children.... so what can I say?
Well today one of the girls mom send homemade chicken pot pie and sent ME a portion. Goodness. I LOVE pastry pies. Love them. Love them with a love that is completely unwholey.
So I thought "well that's fine... I'll just eat 1/2 of THIS instead of what I was going to eat! No problems!!!" and I take one bite. And it's soooo good. And another bite... 5 bites in and I realize that I WILL eat the entire thing and it's like 600 freaking calories and I DON'T NEED IT! So I chucked it out. Gone. I logged my five "just a bites" (they were smallish bites) changed around my meal plan, eliminated the yogurt and one laughing cow wedge I was going to have with lunch and carried on.
But you know what? I think I am going to start including lunch with daycare fee's. These kids bringing pizza, chicken nuggets, NUTELLA sandwiches etc into my daycare is really really bothering me.
Just a vent
