Candy Bags to Healthy Snacks: How Do You Do It?

I had to share with you about our Halloween experience. It offers an idea to cure your kids’ addiction to candy bags.

Anybody that has kids knows the damn kids will annoy you day after day. They will say, “Can I have one piece? “Could I have two? “But please can I have a piece of candy?” And so I this year told the kids that they could eat as much candy as they wanted. Okay, I know this sounds crazy, but let me tell you what happened.

Candy Bags

They ate so much candy that they were sick. They had a headache. They’re saying, “Mom, I’m so sick. “Why do people eat like this daily? “I don’t understand. “The chemicals are giving me a headache.” I mean, they said the funniest stuff.

Then we get home, and they say, “Mom, please.” They were begging me to throw the candy out in the garbage. So I did, and I left it kind of like on the top of the trash because the trash was full. Well, they woke up in the morning and they opened the trash. They were like, “Oh, Momma, please, it makes me sick to even look at them.”

Overindulgence Works – Sometimes

The point is, it worked. They have not asked me for one damn piece of candy. Then I got to thinking. Wait a minute. As for us moms, when we cannot stop eating a certain food, maybe willy nilly go crazy and eat as much as you can until you’re sick. And then you never even want to look at that food again. This is an effective idea of how to cure your kids’ addiction to candy. It could work with other junk foods as well.

I had a client that ate Pringles like that. And I would go, good, have at it. Eat as many Pringles as you want. She made herself sick. She can’t even look at a Pringles.
