This is SOOO frustrating to us, as well. We deal with it with both sets or grandparents and our DCP. Once we have put our foot down, they do better, but they still need reminders. I caught our DCP giving the kids (1-2 year olds) icey pops as a "snack" outside! Man, was I mad! I sent in some all natural sherbert popsicles for my on instead.
But it is so annoying when it is your own family that won't listen. Don't they get it that we have to pay the doctor and dentist bills from all that crappy food???? AHHHHHH!!!!
I would take my lo out of the situation if they wouldn't listen - especially if they tried to give him/her beer or something the child was allergic to...
