It is, and I do eat. The problem is that I need to take time out of that already-tiny-amount to go get ingredients, and then do things to them so they are palatable.

Sure, it sucks for the kids, but let's not pretend that the measles are fatal with the exception of a tiny fraction of cases.

Huh? Quoth wikipedia:

Between the years 1987 and 2000, the case fatality rate across the United States was 3 measles-attributable deaths per 1000 cases, or 0.3%. In underdeveloped nations with high rates of malnutrition and poor healthcare, fatality rates have been as high as 28%. In immunocompromised patients (e.g. people with AIDS) the fatality rate is approximately 30%.
