So What if You Didn’t Cook Your Child’s Meal?

Let go of the parenting guilt to be the perfect parent that packed an envious meal. There is so much pressure on parents to do everything with a smile. You’re a person with your own needs so shed the guilt over not preparing a meal from scratch by remembering that you need to feel happy and healthy before you try to pack that into your child’s school bag.
