We limit how much we eat out. I want as much control over what my kids eat as possible.
I pack their lunch everyday for school because I don't want them eating school food which can be high in fat. ($12 a week each) I also do not allow them to eat fast food except for maybe once month. They consider it a treat and I don't have to feel guilty. My kids do love subway and would rather have a salad at a restaurant rather than french fries. Just because they are kids does not mean that they can't eat healthy. I don't want my kids to only know McDonald's!!
This saves us money and our health!
