Some data points that might be helpful. First, I guess I’m not really looking to assemble a scrapbook of ideas here. The Church has lots of awesome articles about teaching young’uns to fast, for example this one, which is perfectly adequate but not exactly a happy-friendly starting point for little kids. Instead I’m just bouncing some ideas around and mostly want to see whether this would work. Second, my wife is hypoglycemic  and I’ve never seen her fast. Third, I enjoy fasting because take that, body! but later that day after I gorge myself on roast beast my body is all, who’s the boss now? , which is my way of saying that I’m not particularly good at fasting either and my kids have suffered because they have not had the good example of noble fasting which they deserved. Third, one of my kids is probably hypoglycemic  and behaviorally it would be a complete disaster if that kid skipped a meal. Fourth, my kids are already failing to thrive and deliberately skipping meals would definitely not be recommended by their pediatrician .
So, I guess what I was planning on being a little more in fasting, or at least explaining to my kids what I’m doing. Then maybe over time introducing them to the prospect. I sure am not looking forward to ever forcing a fast on them, but it could happen. I don’t have much of a plan, but it seems to me that fasting is a pretty prominent feature of membership and I think they deserve to know it and understand it before they get baptized.  Thoughts?
 Not really, but she says she “could be” and hates fasting. I’m not calling her a liar.
 Judith Light.
 Unlike some people in my family, this kid is probably a legitimate hypoglycemic.
 I’m not sure a pediatrician would ever recommend fasting for a non-adult. Some doctors recommend periodic fasting for some adults.
 Now I just need a game plan for telling them about this thing called Stake Conference.
