It happens every year. School starts and chaos reigns. I feel like a taxi service, shuttling from this practice to that. First soccer, then baseball. Mom goes here, Dad goes there, and who has time for a sit-down family meal in between?
Dinner has always been the time when we catch up with each other and make family a priority. But that just isn’t feasible sometimes with our busy schedules. I mean, it’s like Grand Central Station around here!
And so the mom guilt sets in.
We’ve partnered with Hebrew National to share how we deal with mom guilt during the busy back-to-school season.
We all know how important it is to serve a wholesome meal with quality food and ingredients for our growing kids. I want to serve a substantial meal so they can be at their best.
I remember one time picking my son up from soccer practice and he was so hungry. But we only had 30 minutes to get home, finish homework, and get him in bed.
We all know how important bedtime is during the school year.
Oh, how I wished I could wave a magic wand and have a home-cooked dinner on the table.
So now we do the next-best thing. I keep Hebrew National hot dogs on hand during the school year for a fast, filling dinner that will give everyone what they need to get them through their activities. Then, add a side of fresh veggies or fruit to round out the meal.
No “hangry” kids around here!
Hebrew National hot dogs are quick to prepare, quick to eat, and they’re cooked so it feels like a real dinner. Ready in under 10 minutes and made with 100% kosher beef, I know I can have a simple meal that my son will love and I can feel good serving him.
Goodbye Mom Guilt!
