Hot dogs and blueberries:

Studies have shown that peer influence can outweigh parental influence. If this is true, how am I to combat the following.."Mama, J. brings a hotdog and blueberries for lunch every day." I try to contain my disgust but I am too transparent and he asks, "Is that bad for you?" I reply, "Well it isn't the healthiest thing to eat on a daily basis. And blueberries aren't in season right now." He says, "Maybe it is Summertime where he comes from." Hmmm...Summer has come early to certain parts of Jersey City..I guess we can thank global warming.
