What is our take on calling fruit "sports candy?"

I think that it is a load of crap.

I don't either...who does this? Never heard of it.

They do it on Lazy Town, and I have just chalked it up to being Icelandic, but lately I have seen it suggested in magazines, including Segullah. It is supposed to trick our kids into eating fruit. I still think it is crap. Lying to my kid is something I save for special occasions like "Pooh Bear is sleeping" when I don't want to watch a movie.

It sounds like a sin to me.

I think it's about as silly and effective as not letting the Cookie Monster eat cookies.

Gimme a break!

Oh... maybe it's me...but I think our kids are smarter than this... I know mine would call me out on it... as she does anytime I try to fool her. (luckily she likes fruit...veggies is another story).

and... I don't want my daughter selling me a "resort" when it's really a old folks home.
