This blog almost made me puke.
The things I do to bring you guys info and entertainment…
Sooo….this chic named Stacey Irvine, a 17 year old in Britain has been scarfing down McDonald’s Chicken McNuggets all her life. No fruits. No veggies. Just nuggets.
While my 7 and 3 year old sons would enjoy the thought of this, it is actually disgusting and not good for you.
Stacey was rushed to a British hospital bc she collapsed and was struggling to breathe.
Upon examination, doctors learned since the age of 2, Stacey has never eaten fruits or veggies, only fast food fried chicken nuggets.
Ok, I know babies don’t come with a manual, but come on parents, THIS IS NOT GOOD!
Stacey’s mom said she tried to get her daughter to eat other foods. Stacey said once she started eating nuggets, she “loved them so much they were all I would eat.”
A study determined McDonald’s Chicken McNuggets are “stripped down to the bone, and then ‘ground up’ into a chicken mash, then combined with a variety of stabilizers and preservatives, pressed into familiar shapes, breaded and deep fried, freeze dried, and then shipped to a McDonald’s near you.”
Do you like cosmetic products and Silly Putty? Great, because one of the stabilizers and preservatives you are eating is dimethylpolysiloxane, a form of silicone used to make cosmetice products and Silly Pully.
YUM-OH! Let’s break out the BBQ sauce!!!
Parenting isn’t easy.
We are often trying to spread ourselves thin finding enough time in the day to get things done.
But COME ON…we have to do better than letting a fast food chain feed our kids on a regular basis.
Do my kids eat McDonald’s? Yes. But not on a regular basis. I also make sure they eat fruits, veggies, and healthy home cooked meals in addition to
the crushed eyeballs/tendons/preservatives nuggets they get at McDonald’s.
I remember growing up, an outing to a fast food joint was a TREAT. It was a reward for doing something really great like getting an “A” on a report or my mom getting a promotion.
Fast food was not the answer to dinner EVERY NIGHT.
Just like we are conscious about who our kids play with, how much tv they watch, their grades in school, their safety in public, what activities of play they do…we should also be responsible about what foods we feed them regularly.
If you have young kids, start them on good eating habits NOW. It will make your life and theirs much easier and healthier.
P. S- Someone please tell me Chick Fil-A doesn’t do any of this crap to their chicken, bc I GETS DOWN at Chick Fil-A!!!!
