everything in moderation is a good way to go (except for sashimi)...when I go to restaurants and ask if they have MSG in the plain congee - some say yes, others say, no we don't have MSG in our food...but then I taste the food, it's too good to be true....I think they're putting in chicken powder instead...not "MSG" but same kind of thing - what do you do?!? I try bringing my own food, but last minute decisions to stay out kind of screw me up and I end up buying bottled food (organic)...but, I'm not sure which is better "adult" food or bottled food that is "organic" - what do you guys think?

For us, it's a totally different story at home. I'm really picky at home because I have full control over my son's eating habits there. So, it's always honey or stevia instead of sugar and if it happens to be sugar its raw, organic sugar. It's a bit of selenite sea salt here. Virgin olive oil for cooking. Veggie and fruit smoothies. Limited dairy intake (he still gets plenty of calories and calcium). Organic soy milk. Meats I can say that are reasonably safe and toxin free (not quite free-range but...).
When we go out to eat, I've found it's just way too stressful to be having to run off to buy my child a jar of food when he's hungry and wants to eat what everyone else is eating too--he is a part of the family afterall. I used to be really picky at restaurants as well and I'm sure my Chinese in-laws think I'm coo-coo, but I guess what has happened to me is what happens to most new parents--we chill out a bit--pick our battles a little more carefully and do our best to find the middle ground when it comes to food choices.
