Fruit Is But One Food Group

| Family & Kids, Top

(I work in a standard gas station: there are few healthy things and lots of unhealthy things. As it is summer, we sell a lot of ice cream products. A family of three approaches me register and the father places ice cream bars on the counter.)

Father: “Just these, please.”

Me: “All right. Was there anything else you needed?”

Mother: “No, thanks.”

Boy: “Mommy! Can I have this?”

(The boy, about four, proceeds to show her a container of sliced fruit that we have.)

Mother: “Nuh-uh, put that back. You’re not getting that.”

Boy: “But Mommy! It’s delicious! I’ll eat it!”

Mother: “Put that back now! You have to eat your ice cream bar first!”

(The boy continued to beg for the cup of fruit until he’s forced to leave the store with his ice cream bar.)
