Far from the tree

This week at Gavin's preschool, the focus is on food and nutrition. I was totally stoked thinking that my boy- the son of a dietitian- would regale his teacher and classmates with tales of the power of broccoli and the beauty that is the cantaloupe.


This is the project he brought home today:


This is the dietetic equivalent of the child of an oncologist bringing home artwork created of packs of Marlboros or the child of a firefighter bringing home artwork created with lighters and books of matches.

Never mind the fact I just spent four days in Kansas City attending a class on certificate of training in childhood and adolescent weight management (a trip that I just spent an hour composing a blog post about only for the computer to chew it up and spit it back out leaving me unable to salvage the remnants).

Just goes to show you the power of marketing. Chances are high that the magazines they used didn't feature organic stuff.

Max loses his mind now whenever he sees a Dunkin' Donuts sign--which is every 5 feet here in MA. Thanks James.

Right now his collage would consist of mustard, mustard and some mustard to eat with his mustard.

He would love it if DD made a mustard-filled donut.

Too funny Amanda. And I agree, I'm sure the mags they used didn't have lots of fruits, veggies, and other healthy stuff. There's not money in advertising those!

Where we used to live, our favorite ice cream place, where my then-fat-pregnant-self ate at all too often, was in the same shopping center as a Blockbuster Video. For months any time Guthrie saw a Blockbuster sign his eyes lit up and he squealed "Ice Cream!"
