How many times?

I mean really how many times can it possibly be said? How many different ways can it be said? Yesterday one of my kids had cookies, which isn’t out of the norm for this one, and I took them away. Even though yes it was a 100 calorie pack of cookies it was still a high sugar lunch. Now that was at 10 in the morning so there was plenty of time for the sugar she had already had to wear off before Grandma got here. But the time she got picked up she was on the down side of her sugar day. She was weepy and whiney and started crying when she told Grandma about what I did with the food. I told Grandma that it was just a lot of sugar and that I wasn’t mad/upset with her at all. And then today one of the first things she pulled out a Jell-O type thing from Kozy. The second ingredient on it is sugar!!!!! How does she not get it? How many different ways can you possibly tell someone that sugar is not something that their kids need a lot of?
