the junk foods is not good for your health, but in modern society, the people is very busy, no much time to do the cooking. So ofter eat the fast noodle, so everydoy should refuse the junk food.

yeah perhaps she is too busy to prepare one for them since she is a working mom but at least she could buy nutritious food for them. thanks for the comment.

Is the mother giving the children junk food? If they are in school no one can force them to eat what they have in school. The mother can make healthy food so the kids can take with them and not eat the schools food.
