#KYCH Doughnuts>Cookies?

A year ago we moved to an area that made it possible to walk to school. It was tough to get my kids on board with this walking-to-school thing, so I decided to bribe them with a donut at the market that was on the way to school if they would walk. Living in Seattle I had no idea that a year later we would be walking to school 90% of the time and that my kids’ normal morning routine would be to have a donut.

Almost daily we get to the shiny donut case and my kids ask for one of the beautiful, sparkly cookies instead of a donut. If there are any other parents around (in an effort to keep the fact that I feed my kids a donut every morning hidden) I quietly whisper that they are allowed a donut and nothing else but a piece of fruit. Yeah, I say that part loud: “You can have a piece of fruit if you don’t want a donut.” Unfortunately they usually reluctantly grab a maple bar instead of the cookie they were hoping for. We pay for our donuts and the sweet cashier whom I have come to adore (because she sees me buy donuts every morning and still loves me) cashes us out and we finish our walk to school.

I always ask myself would letting them have a cookie be even healthier for them than the frosting-covered, fried, sweet bread that they are eating? I don’t know, it actually might be, but in an effort to “keep my crap hidden” there’s no way I’m feeding my kids cookies for breakfast. I agree, it’s totally insane that a donut is an acceptable breakfast food in our culture, but for now, if it gets my kids out the door and on their feet instead of in a car and gives me an extra mile to talk and laugh with them as we walk, then it’s well worth it. As long as no one knows that 3 of my kids have a donut 5 out of 7 days a week for breakfast, we’re good. And when people ask, I only share that we walk to school every morning, not that we eat a donut every morning. :)
