Eating out is fun and when I don't have the energy and sometimes time to cook, it is convenient, but I never make it a habit because it can get very addictive for your child and very costly for you. You don't want to create a bad habit for your child that will cost you more headache and money in the future. Especially if your child likes to get fast food. Its not healthy and its not a substitute a good home cooked meal. If you find you don't have the time to cook, then something is a little out of sorts with the priorities because we as parents have to always find time for whats most important to us, our children and their well being. Even if you have to cook and store until dinner or find some other creative way to manage that.
