Yoni Freedoff in his US News’ article You’ll Gladly Die for Your Children; Why Won’t You Cook for Them? (emphasis mine):
I’ve heard all of the explanations—time, cost, after-school activities, lack of cooking skills, picky eaters, etc. But ultimately, I think the real reason parents who would die for their children are comfortable feeding them from boxes and drive-thrus isn’t due to a lack of love or concern. It’s because society has been so firmly and conclusively duped into believing that doing so is both safe and healthful that it has become our new normal.
It’s hard to eat a whole foods diet without the time, energy, and ability to cook. I like what Shari Bambino said on Facebook about this link: “Before we worry about diets we should worry about cooking.”
