Feeding your kids junk is just not a very good idea. Yes it is cheap, but it is very unhealthy and full of chemicals that can for example mess up their hormone balance and later lead to serious problems.
Eating this way also makes it less easy for our children to concentrate, and that is a very common problem these days - often caused by the food we eat.
There are kids eating junk food everywhere you look, right? On the buses, outside schools. on the playground...
You don't want your child to be one them.
Because it could very well be that they will get health issues and heart problems before they even get a chance to have a family of their own.
Another thing worth mentioning here is that food has such great power. With the right food (and with the absence of the wrong ones) we can prevent many of health challenges.
I recently read how a mother of an Autistic boy was able to help him so much by cleaning up his diet.
And this boy had serious problems all the way from birth that just slowly disappeared! The doctors couldn't believe it.
If you want me to send you the article, just let me know.
My friend Cristina tells her story about her family and fast food:
I was young I couldn't live without fast food and junk food. I would
lick the inside of the chips bag just to have the last taste of the
chips! But when my mom experienced a complication due to her high uric
acids I got afraid.
The doctor said it was due to over consumption of salt and unhealthy foods.
My mom still suffers from this. In her 20's my mom used to love eating junk food but now she regrets those days.
Because I was so worried, the doctor explained to me that even if you are eating fast food a lot, it does not mean you will get the same sickness as my mom.
It depends on the amounts of junk you eat and how long you have been eating it regularly. Because it takes time."
Another disease that could develop over time if we don't care about
what we put in our mouths is diabetes.
And diabetes is not at all fun to have...
So the best thing to do would be to stay away from junk food all together!
With the way things are going (health problems earlier and earlier), marketing junk food to kids should be seen as a crime.
It is advisable to "clean" our body from the inside by increasing our intake of fruits and vegetables.
If we eat enough of those and leave out
the bad stuff (yes, most breakfast cereals are junk too!), our bodies are cleaned slowly and
The earlier we start eating healthy, the better. But it is never too late!
