My fiance doesn't have any understanding of proper nutrition because he's always eaten whatever he wanted and he has always been thin and never gets sick. He eats alot of processed food and snacks like chips and chocolate and will hardly eat any fruits and vegetables. I like to feed our daughter a well balanced diet and of course I eat the same way. But he is constantly snacking on junk and of course she wants it too and he gives it to her. Even if it's almost supper time or just before bed. When I confront him and talk to him about the possible effects of this, he just says "everything is allowed in moderation" but he's not giving it to her in moderation in my opinion. She still gets all the good stuff throughout the day with me, but I think she is having too much of the other stuff. She's only 2. How do I get him to understand where I'm coming from and back me up? I've talked to him about obesity and the effects of processed foods on the body but he seems to think that will only happen if she's eating only junk and none of the good stuff that I feed her.
