Fast food is killing kids today. No parent should feed their kid, McDonald’s, Burger King or any other fast food out there. Go back to the 50’s when kids were slim and healthy, played outside and ate what their parents made.
I actually work at McD’s right now (only for one more day though, thank god) and I see people come through almost daily with their kids and order the worst things all the time. My favorite is when the parents order the kids apples and milk and then get themselves a large double quarter pounder meal. It doesn’t do any good to force your children to eat healthy if your not actually helping to set the example by doing so yourself. Its the whole “Do as I say not as I do” thing, and come on how many people went and did exactly what you saw your parents doing just because they did it and told you couldn’t? It doesn’t help your child when you aren’t setting the example.
Joy P—- the extra value meals for lunch and dinner actually do have the option of getting apples, a parfait, or a side salad instead of fries, at least here they do.
Julia—- the hamburger meat is actually 100% beef, I know it doesn’t seem like it but it is, and believe me I’m not saying that out of some crazy loyalty to the corporation. I have only worked there while I was in school because the hours available were what I needed and they paid me more than anywhere else was willing to. I’m just saying don’t believe everything you see on you tube.
