A little lollipop will go a LONG way…

July 18, 2008

Sugar-free lollipopNow I’m sure this will be frowned upon by some of my more patient peers, but a lollipop is a sure bet for keeping my boys happy (seated, quiet, belted) on an airplane, especially at those crucial moments like take-off and landing…

Give your kids a wrapped lollipop and it will give you at least 15 minutes of quiet time: five minutes to get the wrapper off, and then at least 10 to enjoy their lolly!

You can even buy sugar-free lollipops these days, which are better for their teeth, and they can’t tell the difference! Oh lolly, lolly, lolly, lollipop!!

What makes the sugar free ones sweet?

Shawn- I’m not sure they ARE sweet. They’re made from real fruit, I think. No added sugar, artificial flavouring, colorings, or preservatives. Good, no?

[…] Find something yellow!). After that, bring out the unhealthy snacks (cookies, chips, bonbons, lollipops, M&M’s, etc). And then, we have reached the point where you WISH you had a portable DVD […]

Ok, I looked it up…they have Splenda in them (aka Iso Maltidex).

Is that BAD??

it’s an artificial sweetener, derived from sugar.
It’s quite controversial, side effects apparently are not clear. So maybe it’s better not to give it to children.

Well then… just give them the good old-fashioned kind with the sugar! 🙂
