[IP] Re: Kelly's Tea Party

When my daughter was first diagnosed we had a dietitian that kept saying
“sugar is evil, it will rot your teeth”. She want my daughter to tell this
to her friends when they were eating sweets. “Fresh fruit is sweet enough
and is better for you”. She also said no cake with or without frosting, ice
cream, or candy. She also said she raised 4 children and they never had
cake, ice cream or candy (poor kids). She made them give all their Halloween
candy away. She said no to everything but fruits, vegetables and lean meats.
My daughter’s birthday was less than 2 months away. My than 8 yr. old was in
tears by the time we left. Being new to this, we thought she was right. Boy,
were we wrong. In the three years since we have learn a lot. Eve now works
occasional sweets into her meal plan. This is one of our many horror
