Fun junk food

These days it’s hard to turn around without someone reminding you to watch your fat and cholesterol.

Junk food has become a dirty word. But in the real world, kids love things like pizza and soft drinks, and big bowls of ice cream.

Well, there are ways to let your kids have fun while still minimising the damage.

Instead of banning cookies, limit them to one or two a day.

And there are great tasting light ice creams on the market.

There’s also nothing wrong with having pizza on Friday nights. Just serve carrot sticks or a fruit salad first.

And try ordering a veggie pizza — your kids may surprise you and actually like it!
