Is it so bad that I wanted a brief window of food related peace? It's not like it's going to kill them to eat junk every now and again (assuming there is no metal in the hamburger). I am grateful for the reality check, however, when it comes to food. It reminded me that no one is going to prepare a healthy and additive/metal free meal for my family except me. It's the annoying truth.
I also realize that we live in a world with a lot of flashy food products that my kids see every day in advertising and on the school lunch table. I can't just pretend that isn't happening. We can make a lot of good choices about food, but we can't eliminate the junk. I hear all the time about "poor so and so" at lunch. Her Mom only gives her carrots and a sandwich for lunch, so the kids feel bad and share treats with her. Yeah, sorry health mom. The birthday train is also ongoing at school, so good luck avoiding the processed sugar.
