How much junk and processed food do you let your children eat? I make almost everything from scratch including cheese pasta, chicken fingers, cookies and bread (as often as I can). I am a SAHM so I have more time to do it, I enjoy doing it and I have a severely allergic child so it makes it easier for me to control ingredients. But on the rare occassion that my husband makes a meal, he buys them weiners, Kraft dinner, etc and you would think it was Christmas morning at our house. My kids have no idea how lucky they are to get "real" food most of the time. Having entertained many friends and relatives this summer, I am beginning to feel like Gloria Granola because we do not have pop, doritos or candy stock piled in our house. Am I fighting a losing battle? How much junk is too much? Will my kids ever appreciate Real food? How much junk/processed food does you family eat?
