How often to you let your childern or child eat fast food?

I'm not one to let my son it fast food, unless it's a blue moon thangy... Maybe once in two months. How about you moms?

  • Hi Goldielocks! : ) OK, confession time here, they DO eat it like once every couple of wks.... but we eat VERY healthy home cooked meals MOST of the time so it all balances out.... They LOVE their fast food fix and ask for it every now and then so they know it is a treat and not a healthy all the time choice. That's the truth and I am not ashamed (much). Ha! How's the painting going?

  • He's had it twice in his entire life and only once was it a cheeseburger and fries. The other time it was grilled cheese and applesauce!

  • Oh about once a week. Weekends are lazy around here sometimes so we might order in or get something while out running around.

  • It depends on what we are doing but I would say maybe once a week. That being said my daughter loves fruits and veggies and eats a well balanced diet so I don't mind the occasional fast food meal.

  • about twice per month at the most, some months not at all. our favorite take out is Chinese and my family considers it a treat since we dont do it often.

  • Used to be once a week but I'm broke now. LOL. She rarely eats it anymore.

  • Never, but we don't ever eat it and DD's only 18 months old. When she's older and out with a friend I guess it would be OK very occasionally. Hopefully though she'll just think it's gross like DH and I do.

  • My son and I eat fast food every once in a while... he really doesn't care that much for any fast food and would prefer to eat vegetables instead.
