it's not about prefrance, it's about healthy eating for your family. I know in my house, my mother made EVERYTHING from scratch!! If she tried to trick us by using boxed mashed potatoes or something like that, we ALWAYS knew!! You can taste the box or can in your food!! Yes I'm sure many wouldn't know the difference, unless you set the 2 infront of them. But once they tase them, the choice will be more than clear!!! Homemade is WAY better.
What it REALLY comes down to is the nutrition factor of these pre packaged meals, many have so much sodium or other preservatives in them, of course they seem to like it better, it's soooooooooo bad for them.
I don't know too many people who would pass up a home cooked meal over something you'd pop in the microwave. If home cooked goodness is what they are used to, they will NEVER prefer something premade!! Trust me on that!!
