Hi JJ: I'm a 34-year-old working mother of three. My husband also works a 50-hour week. With all my kids' activities and my own obligations, I rarely have time to get a healthy meal on the table. If I do, the kids often protest and refuse to eat it. Especially with the upcoming holidays, how can I feed my family healthy without spending hours in the kitchen (which I don't have)?
In our fast-faster society that rewards more obligations, family mealtime often gets put on the back burner (if it occurs at all). Spurred on by your kids' incessant begging, succumbing to the drive thru or ordering in pizza becomes all too easy after a hectic day at work.
