Give the kid a break -- a Kit Kat break/bribe

(CBS News) Chocolate is the universal language. So, even if you can't understand what this father is saying to his daughter, you can catch the drift. I have a toddler, and toddlers definitely know what they want, and more importantly what they don't want. Healthy food is not on the top of their wanted list. But if they've ever tried chocolate, they quickly learn that they want it again, and again. Check out this YouTube video of Danilo V pulling the old dinnertime food switcharoo to get his baby to eat something healthy.

Was this mean or clever? I'm going to go with a little bit of both (but mostly really clever), especially if dad gave Sofia a little Kit Kat for dessert after she ate her not-as-yummy wholesome veggies. Even better, maybe someone at Nestle will see this video and send this family a lifetime supply of Kit Kats! That'd be worth eating a few potatoes and whatever other healthful ingredients are in that mush dad's forcing down her gullet. And everyone all together now, "Give me a break, give me a break, break me off a piece of that Kit Kat bar." And with that, I bid you good night! I am off to the store to get a candy bar!
