I am now taking the view that dark chocolate can be good for you and have turned to the quality products with the aim to just eat one square at time - emphasis on try! Still if I get given a box of chocolates as a present, it does not last too long - just taking one or two and putting the box in a cupboard does not work for me - or my husband - unlike those strong-minded souls who still have chocolate Christmas presents untouched months later.
And no I don't regard myself as fat, though I would be a lot slimmer if I cut out chocolate alltogether.
As for my two year old granddaughter, I am pleased she has not yet had her first taste of chocolate. She has that temptation to look forward to.
