Does your family eat Humber/chicken/tuna helper?

if not is it just personal taste or nutritional value?

*******

growing up I never ate stuff like that or Raman noodles etc..... But as an adult I found and like them, so yes we ate them.

Every once in awhile. I'd just rather cook from scratch. I usually add veggies and such, too.

I grew up on that crap and can not eat it. It's nastiness in a box

Same here... I never grew up with hamburger helper.. It was all homemade food till my mom went on "strike" on cooking and at 12 started cooking for myself.. Hamburger helper was my go to meal and I actually like it... My family hasn't had it Ina while but they do eat it and like it

It was how my mom taught me to cook. I liked them until I started learning to cook from scratch. 

The kids use to love them before my son's tomato allergy got really bad. Now with the very limited choices on Hamburger helpers, they kids dont seem to want it as much.

Yes I add veggies to it and/or serve with veggies and other things.

i really don't see the difference in making food that way or using noodles from a box and sauce from a jar etc.

DH used to eat it. Now he can't stand the smell. I have never had it. And neither has our children.

 I used to buy that disgusting crap. Thank god for YOUTUBE and Food Network. I learned how to make from scratch with my own twists to it. It tastes a lot better and I don't load mine down with all that salt. Now that I have learned to do that, I'll never buy it again. As for ramen noodles, I HATE the ones that come in the bag. I LOVE LOVE the CUP O' NOODLES instead.

Growing up we ate them, but no. I don't serve that in my house for nutritional value.

When my dh and I first started dating I did not know how to cook at all so through a lot of trial and error we went from things like hamburger helper, sandwiches, salad, easy things to actual meals. Now we eat simple still. A lot of grilled or baked fish and chicken. He is the red meat guy. So burgers, shepherd's pie, meatloaf. I like to make fancy stuff but he is a simple guy and likes just meat and potatoes. Basically I just googled recipes and got tips from my amazing MIL. She is an incredible cook. And u am lucky to have her as my mil.
