Come first?


I don't mean in an emergency or their general well being.

Fast food is not good for our health or our weight. We have the so many overweight and obese kids today. It should not be eliminated, moderation in everything. By having healthy staples on hand, you have options. You don't have to go thru the mcdonald's drive thru. You can choose to go home and fix something quick and healthy. Or you can go thru the drive thru. But at least you have options.

So, if Tina had *planned* for her kid to go to McDonald's, then it's okay?

I don't see what the difference the reason why you have fast food.

Their grandmother gets them fast food about 2-3 times a month. So I try to minimize it as much as possible on my end. I can't afford to be without ready meals and snacks at all times for them due to the times their grandmother gets it for them. We go out for dinner or get take out about

You are in the minority, statistically. Fast food chains count on the impulse buy and market to it.

<<something they really enjoy not just something to get full, like steak n shake or chinese or pizza. >>


So, is the "steak n shake or chinese or pizza" the something they really enjoy? Or the something to get full?

More ok than doing it because you're in a bind and now you have to feed the kids something high in fat and calories and/or sugar. That's the point, plan better so you have the option to feed your kids healthier more often.

Well for someone who feels the need to lecture me I find it ironic that your children get more fast food on average a month then my dd.
