Convenience foods get a bad rap…with good reason. They aren’t the healthiest thing on the planet, and if ever they do appear in your freezer or pantry, you can be certain it is only because you have hit rock bottom as a mother. Chicken nuggets, frozen pizza, breakfast sandwiches and all their unsavory relatives serve up a dose of guilt to otherwise good moms who find themselves in dire circumstances.
But, what if chicken nuggets actually made me a good mom?
No, I’m not kidding, and I’m not here to pick a food fight.
What if I read another book to my kids because I served chicken nuggets? What if I took my toddler on a walk because I served frozen pizza? What if I played peek-a-boo or jumped on the trampoline or played one more game of tag because I could pop something quick and easy in the oven, or *gasp* – the microwave?
