Ask Aunty S


Dear Aunty S

My two children aged 5 & 7 refuse to eat vegetables and insist on takeaways most nights of the week.

They are not overweight so I feel it is ok. What do you think?



Aunty S Responds

Oh my giddy aunt…your 5 and 7 year old are dictating to you what they want to eat!

You need to be a hands on parent, not a hands off parent!

Of course it is wrong to feed them takeaways most nights of the week.

The fat levels in their blood will be off the scale.

You are guiding them to a life of diabetes if you are not careful.

Why do they hate vegetables?

Have they heard a friend or a relative say this as negative comments against vegetables will stick in their minds.

I have emailed you a diet sheet and all meals are easy to prepare.

Good luck my darling and keep me posted.
