Creating quick, healthy meals is essential for busy families

Moms like me, whose children have moved on to college and beyond, might get misty-eyed about morning cuddles and bedtime stories, but you won’t find us waxing nostalgic about the back-to-school drill. It’s a huge relief not to have that Mack truck of added obligations barreling our way as summer ends. Getting the family back on an unforgiving school-year schedule is tough, and capping the day with a sit-down meal can seem impossible. If you care about your kids’ well-being, though, it’s not optional.

Calorie counts can’t be trusted

Dieters can’t believe everything they read: The food at many popular chain restaurants and in the freezer section of the supermarket may contain a lot more calories than advertised.

Whopper Bar offers array of burger toppings

Now Whopper lovers can really have it their way. Beginning Tuesday, Burger King Corp. will give them their hearts’ desire with its first Whopper Bar in Universal CityWalk, a 30-acre shopping and entertainment complex at the Universal Orlando Resort in Orlando, Fla.

What visitors think of our food

Summer beckons and the idea of driving off and testing road food has a certain appeal, even if gas prices are topping $3 a gallon. Roadfood.com is a bit too slick and polished in appearance to really work as a Web encyclopedia for the nation's best road food. But the idea is valid: a civilized society needs a site to find tips and suggestions for the finest road dives and fast-food hangouts.
