Up until recently I have thought nothing of bringing the foods and snacks I know my son will eat with me to places like resturaunts and movie theaters. I have seen it as a health issue basically, either I bring it or he can't eat. A movie theater for instance does not sell toddler friendly foods like puffs or even animal crackers let alone something like formula or milk. ;-) But now that he is older he can eat things sold at a theater concession stand, but I don't really want him too. Our family has chosen to eat very healthy and it's not just that those foods are not healthy they are pretty much foriegn to his body and most sweets he actually doesn't like. So is it still ok to pack snacks for him even though he can now eat the alternative??? I hate when people sneak in the same things they could buy at a concession stand because it cheaper, beacause that is why costs are so high. Am I being hypocritical?
