Stay calm, it’s sunny
THEY all eat their vegies, and dessert is saved for special occasions.
In the Cox family, of Claremont, treats have a place – but the cakes and lollies are occasional foods and not a regular occurrence.
“I try not to get too stressed out about the issue of treats,” said Kerri Cox, who has three sons.
“They are ‘sometimes’ foods for us, something we might have every now and then.
“We don’t have dessert every night, just occasionally if it’s a special occasion.”
She said her three boys were all different in their eating habits, but she made sure they all tried some vegetables with dinner.
The eldest, 11-year-old Jesse, loves his meat, but still tries his vegetables.
The youngest, two-year- old Joel, has typical toddler habits.
“He picks at food, but he at least tries it.”
And the middle son, seven-year-old Nate, is crazy about his vegies.
“He just loves his vegetables – he gobbles up broccoli and loves it.” HOBARTIANS can expect some weather a bit more common to November in coming days, following a whirlwind 48 hours of extreme winds and snow on Mt Wellington.
After temperatures reached 26C on Friday, Hobart woke to find a blanket of snow as low as 700m on Mt Wellington.
Bureau of Meteorology forecaster Rachel McInerney said some calmer conditions were on the way. “Everything has settled down now and today a north-westerly flow will move over the state bringing a few gusts of wind but nowhere near as strong as what we’ve been experiencing,” she said.
Hobart is expecting a sunny 17C today and 21C tomorrow.
