Tips and Tricks to Quit the Food Police!
Were you recruited to the Food Police Force?
Thinking about joining?
Being the Food Police is the opposite of your long-term goal: a healthy life for your child or the person you support who has Down syndrome. IIt's also the easiest job to get - even in a recession.
Still not sure if this is for you? Ask yourself these things.
- Hide vitamins or other supplements in foods?
- Find your self saying "no, no, NO!" every time food is involved?
- Feel like food is controlling yoru life?
- Bribe your child to eat "healthy" foods?
Does your child...
- Hide a stash of food for later?
- Hide wrappers from foods eaten in the trash can or in the couch?
- "Lie" about what he's eaten?
- Trick friends and family into giving him favorite foods?
If you answered yes to one ore more of these, you may already be on the force.
