Title says it all really. Boys went to see daddy, mummy and daddy had an argument because mummy didn't want to drive over the mountains in a blizzard and daddy said she had to. Daddy brought boys home, with two carrier bags full of sweets and high as kites on crap. Littlest boy is asthmatic, and his asthma gets worse when he doesn't eat enough fruit and vegetables and when he eats too much junk food.
What they actually ate this weekend, according to the kids;
Friday: sausage, beans and chips, with jelly with fruit in it. Could be worse, except that Alex won't eat tinned beans. Chocolate biscuits, crisps.
Saturday: chocolate cereal, jammy toast, McDonalds, party food. More junk food in between times.
Sunday: chocolate cereal, jammy toast, party food, fishfingers peas and chips.
Monday: jammy toast. (they were home by lunchtime, and demanded hummus with LOTS of vegetables for lunch, then had four apples each in the course of the afternoon and roast chicken with four vegetables for tea.)
Oh, and daddy doesn't have a fruit bowl, or carrots in the fridge, or anything like that. He does have raisins though.
I can't decide if I want to laugh or cry- you can get 3 lbs of apples for 60p from ASDA (british walmart) and he can't even be bothered with that?
I swear, I'm not joking. Is there any way I can raise the subject and get the results I want?
