These kids have learned to use Monster or Red Bull or other energy drinks to get them through these practices and these are horrible for them. They use these and then go out in the heat and participate in heavy athletic activity. We had a young kid come to the ER in SVT after drinking two of these before football practice. This is so dangerous and we need to be educating these kids about this. How many of us are guilty of drinking these for a quick boost? Our kids are watching us! There are so many negative effects and according to an article in the Huffington Post it can take as few as two drinks for these kids to have the negative effects. Scary!

I totally agree with you that cooking does not really take that much of our time. What takes time is thinking what you are going to cook, grocery shopping then the preparation. Planning is the key element which will make our life easier. If you plan ahead, everything will be as easy as 123. I also agree with you on the important points you noted on how to help the public in terms of nutritional program. First you posted, making and finding time to make nutritional meals. I always try to find time to cook some dishes for my family even if I'm really busy working and studying. What I do is, prepare and cook two to three dishes on my days off, put them in the fridge then just warm them up every time we
eat. They will last for two to three days. By doing this, I have spare quality time to spend with my family. I try to avoid going to a fast food restaurant or cook pre-made frozen foods because they are not just unhealthy, they are expensive as well. Second, you mentioned to find healthy meals you enjoy. When I think of a healthy meal, I always consider preparing my kids' favorite meals. It's so rewarding when my kids tell me, "This is yummy Mom, thank you for preparing our favorite dish". It makes me want to cook more. Thanks John for sharing the links/resources about ideas on cooking and grocery planning and the healthy recipes. This will help us try to cook different recipes, to do cooking and grocery planning on our busy days.
