Know your treats!
Treats don’t always have to be something “nice” to eat. Spending some time reading to, chatting with, making up stories with or taking a walk with a child can often be more special and memorable for them. If you want to treat a child with food you should have an idea of what you’re giving them, as they are usually high in added sugar, fat and salt. The calories can add up to something much more than just a nice treat.
