Healthy and delicious kid friendly chocolate with low sugar low fat pineapple and ice cream treat and over 100 sugar free low fat recipes.What kind of childhood would your son or daughter have without indulging once in a while?

However, there is such a thing as too much of a good thing and with this food being both extremely high in fat and sugar, you need to limit the amount your child enjoys while still allowing them some of the sweet tastes of childhood.

The simple truth is that neither too much fat or sugar is healthy for anyone, and teaching your child to eat smart at a young age may prevent overeating and obesity as they get older and less active. While there is little doubt that chocolate tastes great and makes a terrific treat, it should not be eaten as though it were the main course and a little goes a long way in relieving that sweet tooth.

Finding kid friendly recipes that limit the amount of sugar and fat your child consumes is the best way to teach them portion control and have them grow up making healthier food choices.

While there are low fat sugar free versions, they contain artificial sweeteners that are made from various chemicals. Artificial sweeteners are not considered healthy for children or adults and these sweeteners have caused some allergic reactions in children. Therefore, it is better to give you child real sugar in small doses than resort to artificial sweeteners that may be even less healthy for them in the long run.

The best kid friendly recipes are those that have healthy main ingredients and include a small bit of their favourite treat to add flavor. Here is a simple recipe that you can make anytime or serve as a light dessert when grilling outside during the summer.

Almost Ice Cream With Chocolate Topping

Another great sweet treat for your child is to take a cup of low fat milk, pour it into an ice tray and freeze it overnight. Then place the frozen milk into the blender add 1 teaspoon of sugar and blend to ice cream consistency. Pour into two dessert dishes and top with 1/2 teaspoon cocoa per serving.

As you can see, these kid friendly treats use the cocoa as flavoring not as the main ingredient, allowing them to enjoy the taste without being fed large amounts of fats or sugar. Children who grow up eating this way are more likely to continue using fats and sugars in limited amounts when they grow into adulthood. This allows you to give your child special sweet treats while still ensuring they are eating healthy.

You also need to keep in mind that children learn by example, so you want to limit your choices of sweets and sugars as well so your child views eating healthy as normal.
