And as you go to your son’s room, you notice all the chocolate wrappers are around his bedside. And when you look at him, there’s smudges of chocolate on his cheek, and you ask him, “Did you eat my chocolate? And he looks at you directly in the eye and says, “No Mom.” What do you do when you catch your child lying? That’s the question we get to ask Dr. Leman. Doug: Hi, I’m Doug Terpening.

Andrea: Not too dark. If it’s too dark then it’s too bitter. Not too dark. Dr. Leman: Okay. Well my wife has an interesting diet.
