“He couldn’t see why people made such a fuss about people eating their silly old fruit anyway, but life would be a lot less fun if they didn’t. And there was never an apple, in Adam’s opinion, that wasn’t worth the trouble you got into for eating it.”
Terry Pratchett - Good Omens
My children are allowed to eat lots of fruit. But it was getting to the stage where they were eating too much. Every 5 minutes they would be at the fruit bowl. Not only was it costing us a fortune, it was starting to have a negative effect on their teeth. So a new rule in our house - ask before you help yourself. The fruit bowl was moved to the kitchen counter.
This is what i found when i came down from the shower. The three little ones had hastily put down their half-eaten booty! How can i tell them off for eating fruit?! Better that they eat it than half eat it right?!
