I heard that said yesterday about a 3 year old and it has irked me all day so I had to get this off my chest.
And I'm not going to get into the (real) issue of healthy food vs. non healthy food. I mean, even some health "nuts" have been known to stop at a McDonald's here and there, or on the road, ya know? I've done it....
but SERIOUSLY?--->> "ALL SHE EATS IS MCDONALD'S"???
I mean, does this child get in the car and drive herself there?
Is her stroller set on auto pilot to wheel her to the nearest Happy Meal?
Guess my point is that it's the PARENTS who have the food choices to make and we all can say NO ( I say no very often, just ask my kids! haha)
Yes, I heard Whoopie Goldberg say on The View something about "stop telling us how to raise our kids" in relation to the matter of childhood obesity.
But again, why are parent's letting kid dictate what they eat? When I was a kid....ha...yes, I feel very old now, thanks....but when I was a kid, I had to eat what my parent's put on my plate whether I liked it or not!
Anyone relate to that?
These days as a Mom I give my 3 a lot more flexibility and choices than I had but nonetheless, if all they wanted was McDonald's, they'd get really hungry, know what I'm saying? Really hungry. Until they learned to eat "real food".
What's your thoughts?
