As if we didn't feel guilty enough, another study comes along to make working moms feel even worse.
The Institute of Child Health study of more than 12,500 five-year-olds found that those with working mothers are less active and more likely to eat unhealthy food. The study is in the Journal of Epidemiology and Child Health.
They found that five-year-olds whose mothers worked part-time or full-time were more likely to primarily consume sweetened drinks between meals.
They used their computers or watched television for at least two hours a day, compared to the children of stay-at-home mothers, who spent less than two hours on these activities.
Working moms: Do you think your kids are unhealthier because you work? (Many of our kids would be WAY unhealthier if we didn't work ... because they would be starving!)
