This weekend I took my daughter and her 4 children out to lunch. My granddaughter, who is 8 picked up the salt and sprinkled it all over her lunch - I was shocked my daughter did not stop her so I told my granddaughter that salt is bad for you and not to put any more on her lunch - My Grandson who is 4 then proceeded to do the same and I stopped him because he was pouring it on.
My daughter said it didn't matter - they can have salt if they want and she told them they don't have to listen to me,..they can have it if they want it !
She reckons they don't have salt at home ( I find hard to believe) so if they want it as a treat when they are out its ok !
We had a bit of an argument about it because I think its mad to allow them something that they do not need and which is positively harmful on top of the crisps and other salty foods they eat.
OK,.. so I shouldn't interfere,.. but at what point should a Grandmother say something if she thinks her daughter is being stupid ? :-(
