You're in Charge of
What Is Served!
If you're a working parent, you may feel guilty about being away
from home. Sometimes working parents try to make it up to
children by giving them food that they know they like.
offering these types of food choices, you might avoid mealtime

of good health, reduced risk of disease and an overall positive
attitude toward eating are well worth the effort.
