    First about the cakes,
    Even I hate the fondants, many kids does too , half the time I see it being left out on the plate. There is a lot of awareness coming in about these cakes not being 'too sweet' but be balanced to enjoy it these days, maybe due to all the good quality national / international cookery shows. So let's see.

    Excessive sugar ,
    I have had the same issues with the amount of sugar in our children's lives each day. Since when did every celebration became about sugar sugar n more sugar :confused: n the stuff that's being sold as children's snack, more sugar o_O

    Then I realized that until unless I teach my kid the self control n right choices from young, I will make no true progress. N that's what I did.

    I explained, spoke about and showed videos n articles about the wrong n right choices of food n started following the same. I should say the progress is a lot better n faster than what I had imagined, which in turn encourages even me towards the right choices at 90% of the time. :angel:
