Sausage rolls and carrot cake

I’ve noticed lately that my kids seem to be given a lot of lollies and chocolates at school. They won table points, here’s a lollipop. It’s someone’s birthday, here’s a freddo. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not completely opposed to sugar, I just try to limit how much my kids eat it, and also, make sure that if they are having treats, that they are perhaps home cooked cake or a reasonable quality chocolate. Yesterday my kids had a market day at school, and although I asked them not to buy too much junk food, of course, they loaded up on toffees, smarties, mixed lollies and cakes. I probably would have done the same at their age. >
