A Healthy Break for Mother's Day

A Healthy Break for Mother's Day

gift.jpgCards, candy, a new pair of slippers, blah blah blah. There’s one thing that most moms really want this Sunday, even if they don’t admit it: a break.

A recent study shows that moms everywhere are feeling stretched a bit thin these days. According to the Adecco Group, the world’s largest staffing agency, three quarters of women who work do so because they feel they have to, not because they want to. Sixty-five percent say they’re cutting their family budgets, and 48% say they’re more stressed than normal due to the recession. Nearly one third, 30%, say they feel overwhelmed by domestic responsibilities.

There’s a lot to juggle, and eating healthy is often too much work for a busy lifestyle. That’s because it requires reading labels, taking extra time to plan meals, and — most importantly — paying more for things like fresh fruits and vegetables. When you think about it, it’s no wonder so many people prefer to swing through the drive-thru.

C’mon, supermarkets, mom deserves more than a bucket of fried chicken. Keep the ball rolling on healthy innovations in fresh meals, couponing, nutrition guides, and more. Don’t make us nag you.
