Kids these days...

Need to learn how to eat better.

My six year old sister has been eating ice cream, chips, and soda everyday since summer has started. Every other day is a different treat. Now, last month she had to go get fillings, because she had 6 cavaties. 6! She's barely going into the first grade...

Anyways...now I'm wondering, when does this become a health concern?

Diabetes anyone?

Hate to get personal but it sounds like your parents need to watch what kinds of foods they give her and make sure she brushes her teeth.

They encourage it.

I just got into a fight with them about her having ice cream for the 22nd consecutive day. (Yes I've been counting,)

She said, well I buy it so she can eat it. I tried explaining that she should eat it in moderation, not everday of the week, but my mother is thichheaded, so she refused to listen to everything I said after.

I'm taking action though.

There is no more ice cream, cookies, Doritos, or Cheese It's in the house.

Gave it to the homeless. :D

There's a basket full of fruit that only my brother and I eat. Hopefully soon she will start eating from there as well.

Six cavities? Yes a well balance diet is in need, but she'll lose most of them before she's 10.

My parents never used to buy a dam thing so when I got hold of junk food I pigged out on it. So when I started buying my own food I gained more weight than I ever really cared too. I'd also developed a soda addiction where I drank about 4 or 5 cokes a day. Cut down since but the damage is done.

Don't forget the lack of Flouride in bottled water (unless you buy it and it says Flouride added, you need to make sure your kids have flouride treatments religiously).

And it's only her baby teeth, she'll lose them. Let her enjoy it while she still has the metabolism to keep her from getting fat. It won't hurt that much, other than develop bad habits.
