I really, really wish you would stop eating that packaged stuff that has sugar added. Nuts, plain yogurt, veggies...but frosted mini-wheats and captain crunch. Get that stuff out of your cupboards,. please. Your life depends on it and if you are feeding this to your child, your child's life depends on it. Please?! I care about you.

Our daughter refuses to eat fruits or veggies, she does like yogurt & has nut allergies. Thank you for your concern. I have been trying to cut back on the sugar sweetened stuff, but figured the mini wheats are whole grain anyway. It will happen, it just takes baby steps. Thanks for your support!

I am glad to see you still making an effort to get the protein into you in the morning.

That nut allergy can be very strong. Just having the dust of the nutson your finger tips and then touching your daughter can have a bad reaction on her.

There's not a lot of good nutritional value in mini-wheats (http://caloriecount.about.com/calori...i-wheats-i8031) or Cap'n Crunch (http://caloriecount.about.com/calori...n-crunch-i8010). I don't know how old your daughter is, but it sounds as if she has your number. If you don't offer those things, what will she eat? I don't have that stuff in my house so if one wants to eat, one has to eat other stuff. A banana? Whole-wheat toast? (Don't have either in my house, but...).What about a yogurt fruit parfait with some more berries on top instead of that crappy cereal or oatmeal instead of that? Oatmeal takes 3 minutes.

It's really not that bad. The cereals contain vitamins and minerals and the milk adds protein, vitamin D and calcium. I think we should be careful about criticizing others' choices when we may not have the full picture.

Yesterday, I had two fried eggs with two pieces of buttered toast and a clementine.
