In the same way you have to take what they say about their parents with a pinch of salt! It is all in the interpretation.

Svrider - you're exactly right. Ds now asks at every meal if the food is 'good' or 'bad' and will it give him a fat belly? He's 4 ffs angry

Completely agree with you OP and many on the thread. At my school we found the best way to teach about healthy eating was to be very positive and to encourage children to try different foods, emphasising that it is good to try all different kinds of food. I loathe the idea that there are good and bad foods, or that healthy eating is just about fruit and veg. I know there is a huge issue with obesity but when I was a child I literally didn't think of food as anything but fuel till I was late into my teens. I don't think it's good for children to be hyper aware in this way.
