We have become a lazy nation for sure.....

People with kids need to be especially careful. If you dont care enough about yourself you should at least care enough to look after your kids health!
There is also way too much advertising on tv for bad food, and none for good food! And ads are so effective, I start getting cravings when I see some of those ads! And they make them so appealing, with all these skinny, good looking, popular people on them! Grr at advertisements! Lol.

And it is more convenient and cheaper to get a burger, chips and drink for roughly $5. Nothing costs that amount of money anymore!!!

But maybe that's just the way my brain works. I always grew up with home cooked meals, both parents worked after I was about 12ish I think. Takeaway was always a very rare thing, maybe once a month and maccas/kfc was even rarer still, like a once per year thing.
