The end of the sausage sizzle.....
Research has been out for years about nitrates and processed meats it's only now finally people are paying attention - I don't believe in moderation as I feel my idea of moderation ( once or twice a year) would be different to someone's else's like my SIL who gives her kids ham 2-3,times a week
I don't eat red meat so it's easy for me not to give DS sausages or processed meats - I do get nitrate free Turkey from my butcher occasionally but it's just as easy to roast your own beef or chicken or turkey if you want protein for sandwiches , DS has had maybe 2 sausages in his 5 years at other people's houses but he's not a fan
I would love all processed meats banned from schools as I do believe some kids are eating them daily and some 3 times a day ( bacon for breakfast, ham for lunch and sausages for dinner ) and apart from kids with sensory or food issues I just don't get why people regularly buy their kids processed meat? Or is it they don't know how bad it is for you ?

probably because it's cheap, easy/obvious and the kids don't argue with it/enjoy the taste, combined with probably not knowing any better/perceiving that there's a health risk attached to high consumption of these kinds of foods.

I don't eat those foods often enough to worry.
I'll still eat them on occasion.
I try to enjoy foods that aren't so great in moderation.

I know processed meats are not good for you but I still regularly eat it as I really enjoy the taste and ease of it. Esp bacon. I love bacon.

I don't eat a lot of processed food either, I actually can't think of anything on my regular shopping list that is processed. But if I want the occasional ham and cheese toastie I'm going to have it. I DO eat a lot a of fresh meat though. Fish maybe twice a week and every thing else once a week. I've tried to have meat free nights but I never stay full and I snack on junk. I would love some good vegetarian recipes.
Thanks @Rose&Aurelia&Hannah now I want a hot bacon sandwich on super thick white bread with lots of butter mmmmm

So is ham off the bone from a butcher the better option? How about turkey?
