Protecting kids from parents’ food issues

Dear Carolyn: My wife refuses to change her diet and grocery shopping to accommodate my health needs and those of our kids. Everything she gets is processed grains and sugar. My doctor recently recommended losing weight, and exercise won’t cut it. But because she had an eating disorder when she was a teenager, she defends her actions by saying I should be happy she’s eating at all.

DEAR CAROLYN: My wife and I had twins this past summer, and most of our family has cycled through and visited them. All, that is, except for her parents. We’ve received excuses like he had a surgery and can’t travel (outpatient surgery in May), it’s too expensive (we’ve offered to pay), and it’s just too cold to travel now.
