My 10 and 6 yos have become obbsessed with dessert! Dessert used to be a treat after dinner and lunch, nothing big. They need to eat enough dinner to get dessert, like eating a little from each food group on their plate. Now it is have dessert or cry. If we are busy after dinner and they remember at bedtime, there is a melt down. If they didn't eat a fair portion of dinner. I do not make my kids clean their plates, I do not want them to overeat, but at the same time, the food served for dinner is more important than dessert. What is your rule for dessert?
