I love this video – so well done and so sad at the same time.

Initially I found it hard to get out of that mentality that I was giving my kids a treat by giving them the occasional fizzy drink (and seemed to get more and more regular as they got older) – but diabetes isn’t a treat, being jacked up on sugar and the crash and cravings that follows isn’t a treat.

Annoyingly, I still sometimes have the urge to “treat” my kids. Even though now I know better. But sometimes I don’t want to be the one saying no, again. Seeing things like the above help strengthen my resolve – it’s my job to keep them healthy and safe while I can, end of.

Repeat after me… “If you’re thirsty, there is chilled water in the fridge”
