Easter 2011

m,z,sHappy Easter from the Bell Family!


For the record, Matt picked out their Easter duds.


Does this look like the face of a child that would announce to the whole church (during the sermon) that “E teetee’d!!!”?


This does.


Just chillin’ in my new monkey chair.

Zane had Easter bunny Kit Kats (his fave), bunny marshmallows, and Pez for breakfast. Maybe that’s why he didn’t sit still during church!

he is so cute but that baby fat will turn into childhood and then adult obesity if you continue to let him have the sweets and chocolate milk.

The Bells said...

Thanks for the comment, deborah, but it's pretty comical. He has NO baby fat and is in the 25% for weight. Our pediatrician recommended giving him chocolate milk and anything else he'll eat with calories. My husband is also a pediatrician, so I think he's in pretty good hands. No one in our family is obese and we all got candy in our easter baskets, too. :)

pediatricians are humans and clearly make bad judgement calls. chocolate milk is completely sugar and no better than soda. the amercian percentile chart is much different from the rest of the world because of choices like this. I don't mean to offend you but it is assumed that parents who give their children as much sugar as you do are just unaware of the dangers.

I am not looking to get into a heated debate with anyone, so these will be my last two comments.
1. Do I know you? If not, how in the world do you know how much sugar I give my child? I can only assume you are basing your opinion of me on one picture of an Easter basket.
2.Chocolate milk is not "purely sugar". It contains the same amount of nine essential nutrients including vitamin A, calcium, phosphorous, magnesium, and potassium as plain milk. A study in the Journal of the American Dietetic Association found that children who drink flavored or plain milk consume more nutrients & have a lower or comparable BMI than those who don't drink milk. While flavored milk does add calories, these extra calories can fit into a child's "discretionary calorie allowance" as stated in the U.S. Dietary Guidelines.

By the sound of it, it seems like you didn't get any candy in your easter basket as a child. And probably not many hugs either. From a concerned physician i feel like it's very important to get some of both as a child.

Sarah, You and Matt are great parents, so don't let 'Deborah' honk your horn. She is obviously a busy-body. Mom
