We need to cut back on junk food at our house, that's for sure. I don't buy soda, so that's a big treat when we're out. Another is probably sweets, since we dessert isn't a regular occurance. But my kids get their fair share of sugar, salt, and fat. It's hard to limit it - I find it increasingly difficult as they get older and more independent.

I guess the only "good" thinkg I can say about L.'s eating issues is that his diet is so limited he doesn't eat any junk food...sometimes, I confess, I almost wish he'd load up on high-fat foods so he can gain some weight--although I do know this isn't the answer.
