Anything can be ordered online these days. With your kids’ favorite fast food, milkshake, and desserts, it may be tempting to simply order what they want and have it delivered to you in no time. As long as they won’t starve for the day, you’ll prepare something healthy later, right? But another deadline comes up, the boss is not happy with the statistical reports, and paperworks just keep on piling by the day. Come dinner time and the only energy we have left is to order online again and simply serve it to the family. It is convenient, yes, but is it enough?
Some schools already started their online school system and perhaps your kids are one of those who have to participate in this too. Now more than ever, they need complete meals. One that will keep them satisfied and energized for the day. More than the various choices of fast foods in the area, why not choose one that offers healthier choices?
Studies show that whether you eat out or bring fast food home to eat, those time-saving meals may be taking a toll on the health of your children. According to Gord Kerr, a Food and Nutritional Scientist, “obesity in children is a rising public health problem, carrying with it the risk of heart disease and Type 2 diabetes later in life. A study of children in 85 schools compared children who never ate takeaway meals to those who ate one or more takeaway meals per week. The findings, published in 2018 in Archives of Disease in Childhood, showed that the groups eating takeaway were associated with higher calorie and saturated fat intake and lower protein and micronutrients. Additionally, the group that ate takeaway had higher total and LDL cholesterol levels and a higher fat mass index.” This means that the more we indulge the wants of our kids and not properly look out on their diet, we may contribute to potential long-term consequences for obesity and risk of coronary heart disease due to increased body fat and poor quality diets.
As one researcher in the Canadian Journal of Dietetic Practice and Research said: “Back at the turn of the century, we began the long process of turning over to the food industry many of the decisions about what we eat, in the name of habit or convenience or taste. Today our staggering rates of obesity and diabetes are testimony to the faith we put in corporations to feed us well. But the food industry is a business, not a parent; it doesn’t care what we eat as long as we’re willing to pay for it. Home cooking these days has far more of a sentimental value, it’s a survival skill.”
