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?

At least 80% healthy whole and organic (if available). Sometimes my Dd does get Mac n cheese, fries, or a small handful of M&Ms

Everything in moderation. Eating junk once in a while isn't going to cause crazy health problems.

Well we got Pizza Hut book-it lunches today...so yes, sometimes. The boys don't usually like eating out, except for pizza, but no I don't buy junk food or convenience foods. I do love to bake, so it's not like my boys never chow down on giant chocolate chip cookies. They are just ones I made at home. 

Try doing some extra cooking on the weekends or simply doubling your dinner and freezing the extras.

Sometimes its too dam hard. Sometimes you don't have the money. The may i see it, your kids are fed loved and have a roof over their heads. Better than the alternative

I buy my kids chips soda candy chocolates . But that doesnt mean I give them every day. Once in a while wont hurt. Besides my parents when I was small they gave me all those kinds of stuff. Im healthy not overweigh pretty good.

Sometimes. Things that are done once in a while will not kill them. It must be tiring to be worried about everything in food all the time. I'd be a mess.
