I knowingly poison my kids...

So I have been doing all kinds of research on processed food and the terrible additives in them. For example, Kraft Mac and Cheese uses additives linked to hyperactivity and other crazy health problems, but tonight I fed my kids processed pizza because I was too tired to cook.

I FEEL so guilty for not making sure my kids are eating organic, healthy, non-processed choices all the time, but working full-time and being the only parent at home quite often I don't have the time and energy.

Do you knowingly feed your kids crap that is bad for them?

We are TTC but I want to start cooking from scratch. Junk every once in a while isn't going to kil anyone.

I cant offord organic and sometimes it makes me sick when I feed my kids. We do eat all fresh and homemade foods no boxs, cans, or bags.

A lot of parts of México are just like any other country but where i Live it is safe i feel safer here then in the usa

Quoting Anonymous:

Really, I always thought of Mexico as a very crime ridden poverty struck country. Not meaning to offend just wondering what's really like there. Do you feel safe?

I used to but now that we have moved to México almost everything is fresh from the market.

Stupid question, but are you Mexican? If not, why did you move there and how is it working out for you?


(We randomly considered this option once upon a time so I'm curious.)

 I sure do

Would love not only to feed my son organic, but myself as well. Unfortunately a wee of trying to do that would decimate my food budget for the month.
