Musings: kids…

Damn it! I wish I had more time to write my thoughts down – every once in a while some ideas flatter me by passing through between my ears, but it happens so fast that I can’t even trace whether it is in-one-ear-out-the-other or some other twisted direction…

Anyway, food for thought: kids – if you take a kid and lay a table out in front of them full of food ranging from sweets to broccoli, will they adopt an optimal eating pattern? And then is their perpetual craving for candy and sugar an indication that they are not getting enough sugar in their system?

On the other hand, grandma says that children are very conservative in their eating patterns. Which means that their patterns may be formed by their parents, which would, in turn, mean that if the kid is begging you for candy, you should know enough to give them just the right amount…

Of course, as with all things, the reality is probably in the middle – habits form through outside stimuli and can be augmented while influenced by body’s needs… but the question of balance remains…
