My daughter will be 2 in august and i don't allow her to eat junk food. She doesn't get chips, candy, sodas, suckers, or any sweets unless i feel like she deserves it. I have had a lot of family members, friends, tell me that i should allow my daughter to have sweets. I got upset the other day we were over at my boyfriend's parents house and i went out to the car to get something and when i came in, my boyfriend's sister (age 30) gave my daughter a sippy cup full of mountain dew. I asked her what she was drinking and his sister was like, i gave her mountain dew, and she started laughing. I took it away from her and gave her some juice. Well me and his sister got into an argument over it. All 'cause she gives her 17 month old junk and lets him drink pepsi, coke and mountain dew, and doesn't mean i want my daughter to have it. Am i wrong for not letting my daughter have junk? I do let her have cake and stuff at birthday parties and every once in a while i do let her have a sucker. If you were me, would you stick with what you were doing or would you ease up and let your daughter have sweets?
