these sweets are nothing but junk food as they are high in sugar calories and low in nutrition. Restrict the intake of sweets to minimum, for once a week/ fortnight. Don't keep any sweets in the house, so that the child is not tempted. Be firm in saying no, when child asks for sweets. Fix meal times for the child, that is with family meal timings. Don't let him eat in between. Give him healthy options, which should be what the family is eating. Try including his favourite healthy options for the meals. You can make snacks healthier by using whole grain flour, vegetables & fruits. Try & make regular food interesting like chapatti veggies as Kathi roll or vegetables, cheese/shredded chicken spread over roti with ketchup. Give variety your child in foods. Don't even let others offer him chocolates/sweets. It would take some time & patience, to make the child understand. Please read the following blog on our website to help in his vegetable intake
