  • I would say in the last month we've ordered pizza once and maybe went to Mcdonalds once and ordered cheesburgers and french fries. Its nothing on a regular basis, just when we feel like it. They are 10yrs and 16 months.

  • She's 5 and we have McDonald's or something like that for lunch about once every week or two. We usually go to the play McDonald's on one of my husband's days off each week, or every other week. Can spend a good two hours there at a time.

  • My son is still entirely too young for fast food, but once he's older I see nothing wrong with it for lunch once a week. Once every week or two is not harmful at all, especially if you choose apple slices or another side over fries. I am going to try to keep him away from it for as long as possible, though.

  • If we are out shopping or running errands we'll stop at chick fil a or mcdonald's. It can be as much as 2-3 times a week or as little as 2-3 a month. It just depends on what we are doing and how much time we have. My boys are 21 months.
