Dy 1 Change can be sweet

I wrote my last blog on how I am ready to go the next step in changing what I feed to my daughter and changing her sugar/refined carb habits. So I went to pick her up from her dad today. I was excited to go shopping and include her in this new gradual change.
This is what I saw as she climbed into the truck:
I was shocked. So much so.... I started to cry. It scared the heck out of me. Not the fact she had it. How big it was. That is a kid size! I was just overwhelmed with emotion. Poor kid. I had to reassure her that I wasn't upset with her. I explained that I was scared. I explained that I didn't want her to be sick like her diabetic father. (You would think he would be the last to buy that for his child. Right?)
So we proceeded to the store and bought lots of fruit and veges. Even a couple things for her to try. Making sure she picked what she wanted. I kid in a fruit candy store. LOL. It is only the first step. Having her excited about alternatives. Changing her palate. I really don't care about fructose comparatively to the refined carbs and white sugars. Making sure the fiber of the fruit is there is the important part. That is what fills you up so that your body naturally controls the sugars and eating too much. Next finding veges and then proteins that she likes.
I call today a success. One step at a time. :)
