We eat fast food about 2 times/mo. and the main reason is that when we go to McD's my dh and I can actually TALK while the kids play and we don't have to yell at them the whole time to stop standing on the seats, bugging the people behind us, talking loudly, crying for food that hasn't been brought out yet, etc. It's actually relaxing which is not something you get often w/2 boys ages 3 and 5.
Plus, I feel like my kids need to learn to do things in moderation. In our house we have growing food and sometimes food. They are very happy and proud to eat growing food almost all the time and the sometimes food is a treat every once in a while.
I'm interested to see what everyone else says about this after also reading the McDonald's thread.
