Kinder Surprise eggs are a fun treat that children love. This is because they are a chocolate that has a hidden surprise toy inside. This gives kids the joy of chocolate and a toy in one go, and is a popular treat because parents want to surprise and delight young children any way they can.
While giving kids treats like this is always a nice gesture, there is always a risk of giving them too much of a good thing. Childhood obesity is a real problem in the world, and it is in no small part due to a large sugar confectionery industry that is marketed heavily towards kids.
Once a kid starts to enjoy a treat like Kinder Surprise, they might get accustomed to it and demand it when you are in the supermarket. Having a child go on a tantrum about chocolate in the supermarket aisle or at the checkout is very embarrassing (and this explains why ‘checkout chocolate’ exists).
In an effort to shut up your child, you might give in and buy them another treat. The problem with this is that they will get more and more spoiled by this, and you will end up feeding them chocolate at an unsustainable level.
It would be terrible if you got into a habit of feeding them confectionary on a regular basis and they developed health issues because of that. It is well-known that people who grow up obese have a much harder time losing weight since eating that way is all they have ever known.
While your child might scream about how they hate you when you don’t buy them chocolate on a whim, they will thank you for it later in life. Hopefully this article helps you.
