Balance, compromise, and moderation

Maybe you should see about a deal with your wife. Show her the rat study (I havent seen it), make your case, then compromise on what things you think are off limits but your wife thinks are okay. Maybe it's okay on holidays if you first both tell your kids that this candy should be very rarely eaten or preferably not at all. Your kids will still be in a much physically healthier environment and with a bit of balance and less friction it will be emotionally healthier as well.
