Reasons to Give Your Child Chocolate

Introduction:

Surely, you should not overdo this, but it is not wrong to give your child chocolate. Here are the top five reasons to give your child chocolate.

Good For Children

We have all heard this before, but there have been many studies over the years which have been done on chocolate. These studies have always proven that chocolate is not a bad food. Because of these studies, we can now all rest assured that chocolate really is no longer considered bad for us. As a matter of fact, chocolate is actually good for us, and chocolate has many good qualities. This is one reason why you should give your child chocolate.

It would be great if people would give their children a piece of chocolate now and then, so that they may experience the joy and satisfaction that we adults do so often in our lives.

Potty

Chocolate is not only good for adults to eat. It is also good for children. Obviously, there is no reason to overdo this, but giving a child a piece of chocolate once in a while is actually a good thing to consider doing.

Children enjoy eating chocolate just as much as adults do. Chocolate can easily be used as a reward. Parents shopping with children can feel free to offer their child a piece of chocolate to reward them for their good behavior at the store.

Chocolate is also a great reward to help parents to potty train their child. Your child will certainly be more apt to go potty knowing that they will get a piece of chocolate for doing this.

Share

Many adults eat chocolate everyday. They may eat a lot of chocolate or only have a little bit. It really does not matter how much chocolate that adults prefer to eat. The point here is that they should be sharing this delicious chocolate with their children.

We have all been taught from childhood on up, that it is good to share. We can freely share other foods and other things in our lives with our children, but when it comes to chocolate, many adults prefer to keep that to themselves. Adults like to hide chocolate in their bedrooms or one of several other places. It is time to get over this and to start sharing.

Dessert

Another reason to give your child chocolate is because chocolate truly is a great food to be offered as a dessert. There are countless desserts that are being offered to children everyday. Many of these desserts are way worse than chocolate to offer to a child.

Children often get chewy candies, hard candies, and candies of all sorts handed to them from their parents. They often get offered cake and cookies. It would be wise for parents to consider giving their child something that would be a little more nutritious for them, like chocolate.

After all, chocolate does have protein, fiber, and antioxidants in it.

Togetherness

The last of the top five reasons to give your child chocolate is that sharing your precious chocolate with your child would surely be a great bonding time.

Chocolate is good for children, and it is a great reward for good behavior. Chocolate is a great food to share, and it is a great dessert to offer your child.

Giving your child chocolate and eating it with them would be a great time for togetherness. This would truly be an enjoyable time that will be appreciated by your child and remembered for life. Surely, eating chocolate together will create awesome lifetime memories for both you and your child.

    I love that chocolate has antioxidants in it. The key is to not go over board.. too much of any one thing is not good. A little of everything is just right. And my taste buds like it that way.

    Chocolate is great for EVERYONE! As long as kids aren't eating a gallon of Hershey's syrup for breakfast, they'll be fine :)

    I like chocolate and never thought to give it to my children. Of course the growing up years when my children were young I did not have much chocolate since we could not afford that luxury.Thank you for the h5 list.
