Huh. Other than items which are off-limits due to food allergies, I can't think of any foods that are a "no, never" at home! Of course, I'm blessed with kids who actually LIKE vegetables--DD once turned down gummy worms in favor of raw baby spinach.

I'm sure we'll eat more sugary stuff and convenience foods, though!

We don't really limit food choices at any time. We don't have to say no because she just hasn't been introduced to a lot of junk food. But we only let DD have pop occasionally at home, maybe a couple times a month or less. But at Disney DH will let her have it for supper every night, until I put my foot down. Mostly because if she drinks pop she won't eat anything. We've always worried about her low weight but she had a major growth spurt this year (15lbs) so I guess I won't have to worry about whether she's eating enough I know she'll lose weight during our trip but this year I won't have to worry about it

We really do not eat much differently except for a few of those candy powder tube things. Reality is he always makes them, eats a tiny bit and they end up never being ate. Our 6 year old is a really healthy eater so if he wants a sweet treat most anytime we are ok with it. Because we do travel a lot, not just to WDW but other places and eat out a great deal, I try not to give into the vacation/junk food mentality. We do eat desserts more often at WDW but he is really limited because of allergies and he is good with that. We do throw away a lot of dessert with one or two bites taken because he will request it and truly not want it and my rule is you never make a child eat sugar
I never break my caffeine rule, even at WDW, but I do allow more sprite. Last trip I don't think we even ate one french fry and I don't think he even ate a kids meal.

Disney eating is pretty much a what ever sounds good, eat it!!

but having said that my kids love fruit/veggies and are very adventurous eaters,so they will try lots too.

Cupcakes for breakfast? sure, ice cream before dinner, why not?

4th meal when we come back to the resort, of course!

We generally eat normally at home, but on occasion we have ice cream for breakfast, why? because life is short and you only live once.

I am pretty strict about the sugar intake at home but when we are Disney World I let my gaurd down a bit and let each child pick 1 'treat' for the day--they chose ice cream one of the day's, cupcakes, gummy bears off of the buffet at 1900 Park Fare and of course a Mickey ice cream bar.

You guys make me look like a delinquent parent! Our Disney trip the word of the day was caffeine! My DD's are almost never allowed sodas at home unless it's a party. And then it is a caffeine free one. At Disney, coke was consumed for lunch AND dinner. My older DD almost passed out from shock when I said yes the first time. I captioned one pic "Disney-the place mom says yes to caffeine"
Two bites of lunch and you want dessert? OKay! chocolate muffin for b'fast? No problem! That being said, they love fruit so they voluntarily ate that most meals. On the way there and home, healthy eating was mandatory.When we enter those gates, all bets are off. It was great

We let our older children (teenagers) have coffee or cappuccinos. We don't let them drink coffee regularly and they are not soda drinkers (always water) but when we are in Disney they know cappuccinos for the older kids. We need the caffeine for the EMHs. We are going soon and that is one of the first things that they said. We can't wait to have our cappuccinos and don't forget the kitchen sink for dinner. Disney is great!!!!!

DS can have all the soda he wants. We don't keep any in the house and only have it on special occasions. Also all of the bacon he wants-lol, he would rather have this than sugary treats.

Oh yes....we have the all you can eat bacon rule too. I would have never guessed an 8 year old could eat so much bacon at one sitting and it did not help the waitress was edging it on....oh.....the memories

My sister and I are teenagers, so we can eat whatever we want. But, I struggle with weight issues, so I have a strict diet. At Disney, I can eat whatever I want without worrying about consequences!

We let them each eat a small Mickey Cake from Boardwalk Bakery for breakfast one morning- along with a fruit cup just to make me feel better about it!

At least it's chocolate cake so they're getting antioxidants.

We allow pretty much all foods in healthy moderation, I believe in kids being kids. I don't deprive them. Soda is a rare treat because of the caffeine, the oldest of my 3 will be given a little slack and will be allowed soda with one meal a day. Other than that, and some lax breakfasting on the day we go to 1900 Park Fare for breakfast, it's pretty much going to be our usual I figure. There might be 2 "junk" snacks a day instead of the usual one... I hope my little guy is over his tzatziki with every meal kick by then, or I'll be carting a cooler bag around...

We have a very strict ice cream every day rule, sometimes twice a day.
