For-the-Cheelrun Nanny State PING!
Regular meals with a reasonably varied content and sane serving sizes... that’s probably as helpful as anything else in avoiding gross obesity. McDonald’s was never intended to become a full time feeding station.
Hey, I know - let’s let the loony left do to food what they did to the talk radio industry ;-)
Can’t imagine what Hannah’s parents are like. s/
Apparently all other fast food companies sell good, healthy, wholesome food and never TARGET children. I gotta tell you I’m more than a little fed up with using CHILDREN to target and sell. The last person I am going to take financial, phone service or eating advice from is a child.
Which is why I don’t take mine there. I also made all their baby food because the jarred stuff doesn’t taste like the real stuff. Guess what. They eat avocados and spinach! When did parents start falling for the kids’ food marketing scheme? My in-laws did with my nephew and he is obese at 10, which I think is child abuse personally. My sister-in-law literally didn’t have a clue that chicken nuggets don’t have to come through a window or from a freezer bag. She was astounded, and actually made fun of me, when I cut up chicken breasts from our local farmer, dredged them in flour, dunked them in egg, then dredged them again in seasoned breadcrumbs and fried them in a little olive oil. people just don’t cook anymore and it’s a shame.
Here’s a hint Lefties. Only eat at McDonald’s once a week or once every two weeks.
Now drink a sip of water. Sit down. Calm down. Relax...
You’re going to be okay.
Leftist food police have decreed no fat chocolate milk be served at schools and MacDonalds has it to try to appease them too. The irony is that the beneficial milk calcium is absorbed by our bodies much better if the milk has some fat in it. Agenda trumps science.
No one is forced to eat it. That only happens in government schools.
McDonald’s also includes apple slices in their Happy Meals to satisfy the food Nazis. On the few occasions that we go to McDonald’s and order a Happy Meal for our 7yo, guess what is left over untouched?
New chicken wraps are excellent and not that many calories for what is a full meal; 440-600.
Kids have these things called parents. Parents should provide healthy meals for their kids and resist the kids desires for too much crap.
Instead, they give in to the kids and let them eat garbage.
I know as a kid, 40 years ago, all I wanted was milkshakes, orange soda and hamburgers. My mom didn’t let me eat what I wanted because I was a kid. It didn’t seem fair at the time, but in hindsight, she was right.
No child will eat any thing they don’t like, having raised 3 boys I can testify to that. So they went hungry a few times, cured it. You ate what was put on the table or went hungry, single divorced working mom’s don’t have zillions to cater to the ‘ I want’s of kids’.
No one forces a child to go into McD’s it takes a lazy in a hurry parent to take them there and make bad choices. The kids meal is about 350 calories with out the soda or the desert. The human body needs protein and carbs, control the portion size to keep the weight off. This was before the new changes of adding high sugar apples that a diabetic cannot eat that much of.
I pitch half the bun if I get on saves on the carbs and calories.
Have you seen the welfare queens on food stamps in the check out line...fat, with fat kids, baskets full of chips, cookies, soft drinks, koolaid koolers, energy, sports drinks, candy, cake, etc. very little you could call decent food unless it comes out of a can and ravioli in a can is not decent food. PB & J is a better choice.
