Child goes to athletics carnival. Said child does not react well to soft drink. Soft drink provided at athletics carnival.
Parent outraged when child has soft drink and enters dangerously irritating and unhealthy sugar high. All compounded by child’s accompanying grandkid giving child whatever he wants.
Should kids be allowed the occasional Coke? Is the parents’ fury all fizz and no calories? Or should parents have the right to dictate their children’s diets? This your Friday dilemma.

Should vegetables be served free in restaurants? That question was posed by health writer Paula Goodyer this week as an incentive to encourage people to make better food choices.
Goodyer reckons that if a bowl of veggies came to the table for free then we’d be forced into swapping an expensive side of chips for the healthier option.
It’s a good idea in theory. Mostly because we really should be doing everything we can to help each other make better food choices, especially when we’re eating out. But that doesn’t mean that everything healthy for us should be free, or that we should be relying on other people to do the right thing for our health.
