This book seems to answer all the practical aspects of eating on the run.
I am guilty of picking up dinner because of rushing around with kids activities and not having time to cook.
I don't eat junk food (very rarely) and I know it's hard to make the right choices whilst trying to feed the family on the go.

I would be interested in learning about the good options I should be choosing.
