Sugar is like Smoking

I gave my kids some ice cream today.  Two hours later I hear, "Can we have the rest of the ice cream for dinner?"  Nope.  "Whyyyy?????" Whines a child, or two and then three chimes in.  I let them know that they need to make healthier choices, blah, blah, blah, body nutrition, blah, blah.  Eli then follows up with, "Sugar is like smoking, mom!  If we have just a little, we want more and then we're making unhealthy choices. You gave us sugar in the ice we want more!  It's your fault we're addicted to sugar!!!"
Great.  Yet another thing they'll be in therapy for when they're older.
