Nowadays, parents often feel guilty if they do not give their children healthy food for every
single meal. Packaged food is frequently known as ’junk food’ but for many instances that
simply is not so. Of course children should eat well, but meals should also be relaxed,
enthusiastic and compatible with family life today.
And it is essential to remember that parents of young children are, by definition, extremely
busy people. Convenience food is here to stay and it can be a valuable aid to the pursuit of
happiness. Parents must seek out the best and aim at a balance between real food and
practicality. With all that convenience food, you can balance out the meal by adding
something fresh and home-made. When your children beg for ice-cream, give them frozen
yoghurt with fresh fruit. Indeed a home where the fruit bowl needs refilling regularly is a
home where people eat well. The crucial point is balance. What is at stake is your child’s
gastronomic happiness – and your own sanity.
