  • COLUMN: Eat at home and save money, calories

     We live in a fast-paced society. And in the age of the “soccer mom,” it can be all too easy to make a habit of grabbing food to go.
    Remember that your children are watching the everyday choices you make. If mom or dad frequents the drive-thru, then it must be okay for the children, too.
