Homemade fast food can be nutritious, delicious and easy to prepare. That is, when made with whole food ingredients using good oil and no preservatives.
In a recent article, Anne Fishel, co-founder of a non-profit organisation, The Family Dinner Project stated,
…family dinners encourage children to eat more fruit & vegetables and fewer fried foods and soft drinks. When kids grow into young adults, they keep benefiting from the practice of regular family meals and are more likely to keep eating healthy food once they have left the family home.
I came across an article recently discussing the issue of when grandparents are caring for their grandchildren they may be negatively influencing the dietary intake and weight status of their grandchildren.
