That one word sums up the problems we have in today's world. What set me off was last Saturday I was at the Natural Health Food store, browsing. They had many samples out for people to taste and one sample was a 'natural' crustable. For the unknowing, it is a pre-made, frozen, round peanut butter and grape jelly sandwich. Now, I ask you, how can you be too busy to make a PB&J sandwich? And if it is for your child, if you let them use the toaster alone, they can handle making a sandwich. It is insane to think that we need pre-made PB&J sandwiches that are popped into the toaster to eat. And now it comes in a 'natural' version?
Okay, I feel better know that I have spoken on this topic.

Amen! I feel the same way. This is the probelm with America today.... instant gratification.... sloth..etc.. if you can't find the time to make a 30 sec. pb and j then don't eat. This only reinforces to our children that fastfood is the only way and we wonder why we are the FATEST NATION in the world!!!

Really? This is the one thing you're going to get all up in arms. And to the other commenter, this does not reinforce children to think that fast food is ok. THAT MAKES ABSOLUTELY NO SENSE. And it taking 30 seconds to make a pb&j? OH HAI, it ALSO takes about the same time to pop it in the toaster, so there is no real difference. Stop blogging just to blog, kthanks.
