This habit can lead to regular overeating and the development of childhood obesity. The results of studies involving children from 18 gardens for kids, writes the Daily Mail.

Researchers interviewed kindergarten teachers. It turned out that many people use food, especially sweets, as a way of rewarding a child for right actions. Going to the bathroom, washed hands, discipline and organization are all reasons to obtain a candy or something tasty. This motivation really works, but the final effect is not all happy. Education the connection between delicious food – it is quite dangerous.
