I will buy the crap food that makes my kid fat and then blame you McDonald’s for selling it!

on May 25, 2012

So I just read the article about McDonald’s:

“McDonald’s Corp investors soundly rejected a shareholder proposal that would have required the world’s biggest fast-food chain to assess its impact on childhood obesity.”

Facebook is blazing! I think it’s amazing how we blame food chains for child obesity! Sure they could do more to serve up some healthy options but we, the PARENTS, are the ones buying the food. You can blame all the savvy advertising, the crummy toys, and the lovely clown that is sure to entice your children to come in and chow down on salty fries and disgusting “chicken” nuggets (I use quotes because I doubt it’s chicken lol) or we could take responsibility and feed our kids clean healthy meals.

I am not going to say that I or my son have never eaten this food, we have and to be honest he doesn’t prefer it to homemade nuggets or even the purdue ones- which is what I consider fast food.

From birth I gave my son (and now my daughter) lots of fruits and veggies and they love it. They don’t even know the world of garbage food exists- and when they are old enough I can only pray that all the years of talking to them about eating/being healthy will be enough to keep them on the right path. We lead our children by example. I let them eat cookies and cake on occasion but if I put cookies in front of my son and fresh watermelon I can guarantee he’s going for the watermelon.

All I am saying is we make choices every day for ourselves and for our children, if you are going to take the easy way and make the wrong choice then blame yourself!
