How many times a week do your kids eat fast food?

We rarely have fast food. The only time we eat that way is if we are traveling or out shopping and need something fast. What about everyone else?

  • not often its fatty and not much too it (paper thin burgers) ew. With the exception of pizza I try to avoid it, esp cuz my boys aren't the outdoorsy type and don't get enough exercise (imo) to be eating fast food unless there's no choice (like time constraints)

  • Next to never. I am a vegetarian, so the only kind of "fast food" that we ever get is fresh-made burritos from places like Moe's or Chilito's. And we only do that once every couple of months.

  • We rarely eat fast food as a family, once in a while on the weekends we have pizza & salad and sometimes we get Subway, but I don't really consider that fast food. McDonald's and those types of places are reserved for when we are traveling and there are no other options or if we are out shopping and need something fast.

  • Our kids are grown, but we very seldom buy for our GR-son when he's over. Unfortunately his Dad buys more than we like, but he's raising him w/out his Mother, he gets no help fr his Mother or sugg either.

  • Zero..we have a home cooked meal every night.. But sometimes, very rarely, I'll get them something from a fast food place.
