Somehow we [mostly mommy] have been successful in keeping Najwa from being a sugar addict. Now, she does consume candy, but it’s nowhere near the obsession of other kids. When we get her ice cream, she usually won’t finish it, she doesn’t drink carbonated sodas [though she does love some sweetened iced tea], and generally doesn’t ask us to buy her any candy when we’re out and about.
Usually she only wants it when around other kids who are eating it. Or, when mommy got her a cotton candy machine!
