This morning as I was perfoming my morning ritual of running around the kitchen packing lunches while making sure that Mr.Toddler was not feeding his hair with milky Rice Krispies at the same time searching the TiVo machine for everyone's favorite episode of Caillou "the kid who gets away with everything", I notice Mr. Pre-Teen carving out his own breakfast. Let's see if I can describe it without going into a sugar-induced coma.
A 12-ounce glass of milk with 3 tablespoons of NesquikA handful of Nestles Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips
Bowl full of Pepperidge Farm Goldfish CrackersPretzel sticks for chocolate milk dipping
As my eye catches this breakfast of champions I wonder how much nutrition is in this meal. None.
But don't ask Mr. Pre-Teen about the nutrition level because he will give every effort to find that one gram of protein somewhere in the label between the 30 grams of sugar and 10 grams of fat.
At least he is trying.
