Got up late? You have to awaken kids, help them do the routine, have to send them to school.. No time to make break fast and how could fill their lunch box? You get the sight of instant noodles packets placed on the kitchen shelf. Oh God, that's enough!
Don't make sighs of relief often, there are lots of warnings waiting for us. Instant noodles contain wax (that prevent sticking while cooking) which causes cancer if taking frequently. And there are lots of other health issues are related because of the high amount of sodium, carbohydrates and mono-sodium glutamate (ajinomotto) in it. I should prevent my kids from prompting to make them frequently, am not sure they are going to accept my arguments..
