So here's the deal. My son has an addiction to cookie. He's going on a hunger strike because I won't give him cookies anymore.
Some friends have suggested I make him a reeeally gross cookie. Either that or cook him vegetable/fruit laden healthy cookies.
Your task, should you choose to accept it, is what kind of cookie would you make a kid to try and cure them of a cookie obsession?
Thaaaanks. :) You'll be helping a little randomling and his Mama.

And I probably shouldn't show this to you, because there's certain to be some aspiring criminals on my f-list. *grin* I know who you are.
All the same, here's a quick way to get into your house if you lose your keys.
Otherwise, it's a good idea to test it just to make sure that you and your loved ones aren't in teh danger.

I've survived TWO little boys - they're teens now. I found a long time ago that arguing is pointless. I took Dr. Spock's advice to heart which was to just put out a variety of healthy things for them to pick from and let them go through their "phases", because as it averaged out, they will usually eat pretty decently. And no, they can't BE contrary if you don't argue with them. Just leave the food out and walk away.
As for cookies, you can make really healthy ones with oats and dried fruit that are just as healthy as a bowl of oatmeal. Just give him one or two, and put other good things on the plate.
Most kids don't really like veggies, but will eat fruits, which are just as healthy.
