One way to help your kids from becoming overweight is by feeding them home cooked meals. In a recent study published by The Journal of Pediatrics, children who ate home-cooked dinners were less likely to have a high Body Mass Index (BMI) and high waist circumference than those who ate more fast food dinners.

    I bet you are confusing correlation with causation. I’m not even going to dignify the study with a read. There could be so many external factors effecting this outcome. Your report suggests no controls just a data crunch.

    Here is one explanation: parents with enough time to make home cooked meals also have enough time to educate there children on nutrition or to take them to get exercise or …. the list goes on.

    Just cause its in a scientific journal doesn’t mean it “Proves” something, this is just interesting information. Something that another scientist could use to form a Hypothesis.

      Eating only home-cooked meals is a great way to avoid weight problems, especially if you’re a terrible cook!
