Mothers are busy creatures, no doubt about it. With work, kids, chores, and on and on we barely have time to breathe, much less focus on making healthy choices for ourselves and our families one hundred per cent of the time.
When we are too tired to cook, eating the quickest and greasiest things you could find seems like the best idea (I mean French fries are potatoes, so it should be fine right). Or when the weekend comes around and this is finally our time to sleep in, we spend the weekend doing just that and send our kids off to entertain themselves with television or some other device with a screen.
Without realizing it, our kids are becoming unhealthy, sedentary and screen addicted, the very things we complain about, because of us.
