How much junk food is good?

A die hard health conscious, disciplinarian will in all probability say that NO junk food is good.

But is that a practical approach?

With mouthwatering temptations being communicated by brands through various channels or mediums only means that the levels of temptations will be high and at times difficult for the parents as well not to succumb to these temptations.

The key I guess is to define and limit the number of such occasions wherein you give the child and yourself a break from the routine and indulge.

Celebrations, holidays, occasions and social do’s and gatherings are likely to see an increase in the consumption of junk food. However an overall balanced routine of exercise, healthy balanced food should do the trick. A qualified nutritionist or dietitian will be better placed to give a qualified and professional viewpoint but the fact is that junk food is part and parcel of our lives, how much and how often is the questions we need to answer.

  1. Our kids have a different issue ! they do not eat anything … be it healthy or junk food ….. any thoughts there….;o(

    • That’s a tough situation to be in. I am sure you would have discussed it with the Paedic. You could try making eating a playful activity for them, throw in some games, occasional TV etc. Good luck

  2. You have raised a valid point there, we need to know where to draw the line, every week we end up going to some mall or the other, though my 11 month old son is too young for junk now, but soon I have to face this.
