Our fast foods dependency is sinking amazingly with our younger people and we are now raising a population of fast food children.
This halting docudrama uncovers infants and tots consuming a food plan of potatoes chip, hamburgers and kebabs, all washed down with bottles full of carbonated soda.

It researches the deep rooted explanations moms and dads fall back to junk food eating and follow three households while they urgently try and get back on the a right nutritious path.

From easy food games to spectacular jolts, the father and mother team up with genuine specialists who guide them through the latest strategies while they try to wean their children off fast food.

  1. When I was little I used to beg my mom to take me to McDonalds all the time, so I grew up a short little fat kid. Around puberty I wisened up and tried to eat right, plus I put on a crazy amount of height, so that was fortunate. But other kids aren’t always so lucky, or don’t get the right information about food and health as they grow older. It’s up to parents to teach them from an early age that unhealthy foods aren’t the only good tasting ones, not just hope they’ll grow into their weight.

  2. Kids don’t usually understand what’s healthy and what’s not until they reach a certain age… up til then they just think “this tastes good, this doesn’t”, which is going to make it harder for them in the future if the only healthy foods they’re given are ones that don’t agree with them, like brussel sprouts or broccoli. Parents need to teach kids that healthy foods can taste good too, and eating them shouldn’t be a chore.

  3. Araniil says:

    or an even crazier idea. Don’t buy unhealthy food! The children look at their parents eating habits, and them saying that they have no control is ridiculous considering they are the ones bringing the foods into the home in the first place -.-’

  4. iXaff says:

    I feel so sorry for these children. If I am gonna have a child I will teach him to eat green stuff and we won’t eat hanburgers at all. Fries…. maybe one a month. These fatty things make you addicted in your brain. While the healthy food is much better for you and also tastes better.

  5. When I say “hunger get the best of him”, I mean until he gets hungry enough to eat whatever is on his plate, not let him starve. Take his traumatic past out of the situation and what do you see? A baby who controls his parents with screaming and crying over good food for chemical filled crap. Honestly, the bad food will effect him more than staying in bed for a night without dinner. You can discipline a child and love them at the same time, you know. That’s part of being a parent, I guess.

  6. While I understand the parents saw their child on his deathbed, and I understand they want to keep him happy and healthy, is that any excuse for letting the child control his parents? I was always under the impression that the parents call the shots and it’s their job to control the child. Understand: I was not trying to appear heartless, I’m trying to be practical. The fast food is full of chemicals and is only harming him, it makes more sense to give him bland food like basic grains than that.

  7. DragonFly122 says:

    “I wanted to slap that baby Michael”I want to slap someone like you for wanting to slap a BABY. The parents nearly lost a child; do you have ANY idea how traumatic that is, nearly losing a child, no…guess you don’t. Michael’s food has been kept bland for too long during that crucial stage of weaning because he was fighting for dear life-this is why Michael’s taste buds are overwhelmed by stronger flavors (like vegetables) Michael’s parents are trying to give him healthy food

  8. ttragedy1 says:

    that is child abuse. children that age dont know what that food can do to them. Why did they feed those kids that food in the first place? when theyre older thet can decide if they want to be owerweight and unhealthy but kids cant make their own decisions yet.

  9. The thing about Michael is…he was SO close to death. Do you really think you could slap your baby and shove him into bed until his hunger got the best of him after seeing him on his death bed? At least they’re trying to give him healthy things and are seeking help.

  10. No control? Did that fat dad say he has no control over what his BABY is eating? The kid is barely three feet tall, you could hide the food atop A cupboard, it’s not that hard. And I wanted to slap that baby Michael and his parents. The kid was screaming and crying about healthy food, the hell? I’d shove him into bed until his hunger got the best of him and he’d be begging for the healthy stuff. What a brat, and what awful parenting techniques

  11. lexxyng says:

    This is so eyeopening for me.From the age of 7-15 I was overweight, by far not obese but I was bordering on 150lbs at 5’1 when I was 15. From 16-18 I started feeding myself and distanced myself from my abusive parents and slowly developed a disgusting eating disorder. I was 103lbs, 5’2 at 17. I am now 18 and living on my own at a constant weight of 115. It’s so so so scary how effective parents are on our diets from the moment we are born.

  12. ByeByeBelly says:

    My kids would never have that because I dont eat factory farmed meat so I wouldnt buy it for them. Buy it for them, theyll eat it and want it! Seriously, you cant blame the kids when they have no control over what they eat! My mum couldnt afford to buy fast food very often so I grew up on normal meals, lots of vegetables. I still eat that way now

  13. This is so disgusting. When I was a young child my mother fed me spinach, broccoli, and lean meats every day, plus an abundant supply of fruits. Fast food was foreign to me, we never ever had it. Maybe once every two months we’d go to McDonald’s but that was it. The result is that I am now extremely healthy and do not enjoy fast food at all. Why do mothers feel the need to give their kids soda of all things! They need water, pure fruit juice on occasion, ugh bloody hell! These people are idiots.

  14. uching says:

    this should be a lesson to other couples, children ruin a good relation let alone an unstable one.so stop to think before you reproduce, because that little infant will turn into a manipulative little sh#t, who will constantly scream, throw tantrums and ruin your love lives, plus you can’t return them once they are in your home. they will always be around.

  15. acting303 says:

    ok what the heck… my neighbors are Korean and their baby eats kimchi (pickled spicy cabbage that makes koreans live longer, its known to get rid of cancer and such), spicy foods, tons of veggies, fish, brown rice, basically everything good, and my kids wont eat anything but fries and chicken nuggets. my neighbors bring us food to try and i know they are secretly dissing us lol

  16. tiwidesk says:

    how can they give their baby cola?? we never had any kind of lemonade/coke etc. in the house, when we where young. me and my brother got water and different kinds of tea without sugar. it´s also extremely bad fot the teeth!

  17. What the hell is wrong with these parents? It’s not that expensive to buy a bag of apples, some oatmeal and milk or dry cereal, and some baked chicken and some frozen mixed veggies. It’s enough food for a week or 2 and half the price of all this nasty fatty food. They are shortening their children’s lives, and they act like they are the only parents who have children who don’t like to eat their veggies. All kids hate it…it’s YOUR job to help them by making it their only option!!

  18. @jewwithbill Someone needs anger management!!? Take a laxative and chill out! I’m not for too much laws and restrictions but sometimes it’s needed. I don’t see how it’s so bad to teach moms to properly feed their child and to underdstand why they should do so.How that suggestion makes me a threat to your freedom and country? Oh by the way, YOUR government is not MY government, don’t assume you’re the center of the world thank you!!

  19. You are the parent and they are the child. Don’t say you have no control. Also, if they won’t eat the healthy food you cook don’t go buy them fast food. They will eat what you have cooked once they get hungry, trust me they won’t starve themselves to death.

  20. WHO gave them KFC, kebabs, chicken nuggets and fries in the first place?? It breaks my heart, cause that’s what my mom did with me, “feed” me crap, and the consequences are still there and i’m 30! There should be a law that would force soon to be moms to take nutrition(not cooking, i’m talking about technical information here) classes.

  21. Chico says:

    It depends if you can pay it off by the end of the promo APR poired. Here’s what you could do to find the actual real answer to this question: First, figure out how much would be the MAXIMUM you could afford to pay PER MONTH for the motorcycle. Divide 3,000 by that amount. It will be a one or two digit number. If that number is lower than the number of months on the promo APR, then it is a good idea since you will pay it off before the end. If the number is *higher* than the number of months, take the extra months, the remaining balance, and multiply by your regular APR for the card. This is how much interest you will pay if you go past the promo poired.Then, you can ask the dealer or a bank about a loan for the bike. Calculate the amount of interest you will pay over the life of the loan. It will probably be some fixed rate X the amount of the loan. Well, that would give you the interest rate for a year. You have to ask if you can pay the loan off early if you want.Anyhow, doing all of this, you could see what the difference in interest would be between different ways of financing the bike,

    / Awesome vlog :D sounds like your hniavg a great time. You deserve every minute of it. Sounds super exciting. Sounds like a bunch of crazy food, but I guess thats part of the fun of traveling. Especially to such incredible places. Have a good rest of the trip! Can’t wait to hear more about it!!

  23. Rika says:

    to me was a conversation ender. You said notnihg about what i said, you just attacked me personally. But I will explain myself a little better anyways because i think it really matters what people belive, even people who just like to mock. 1st, the word dinosaur was made in the 1800, up until that point they were refered to as dragons through all of history,

  24. Madhav says:

    Merry Christmas hope you get some(a lot) of that drinking in. Had a good time with the failmy now have to work split shifts for 2 weeks as the other clerk is on vacation. Well, thats more money to feed my H!P addiction. I mentioned that I plan on going to Japan within the next couple of years and now he keeps bugging me to take him too. Get em hooke young.

  25. Apiwat says:

    ammcinamen18 / I love these pictures! David is a good sgenir not live and live!:) In one of the pictures it looks like David is about to cry probably because he cant believe what he is seeing. Or its because he is just so tired from singing. I hope David had his rest afterward:)

  26. Auth says:

    Try calling the card and asikng if they will lower the interest rate. Some companies will do it one a year or every two years if you ask, but they won’t tell you about it. If cuts into their profit. If that doesn’t work, Capital One has some cards that have free balance transfers, and if you can qualify for one with a lower rate, I would recommend switching to them. You could also buckle down and make bigger payments. You may have to sacrifice a little, but you don’t want to be paying twice what you thought for whatever you bought on that card. And debt-free is so very nice.

  27. Nicolas says:

    bdancer222Instead of paying the cdeirt repair company, go to the bank and get twelve $100 bills. Then flush those bills down the toilet. You will at least get to watch the bills swirl down the drain, which is a lot more than the cdeirt repair company will do.With a 446 score, there is absolutely no way you will be able to fix your cdeirt in less than 3 or 4 years. Not only will you have to negotiate settlement of all the outstanding debts, but you will have to establish current good payment history.Put your hopes of buying a home on the back burner. You need to first learn some better financial management skills.

  28. Abdul says:

    I’m so glad that you commented on my blog besauce it brought me to yours! You seem like a beautiful person, inside and out (and the fact that you love Red Velvet Cheesecake doesn’t hurt either )Something random about me? hmmmI didn’t drink until my 21st birthday! I know, I know, one of the few on the face of the earth haha

  29. Abel says:

    Jenny August 26, 2011 I hate long commutes and with triaffc in Atlanta you never know when you might have one. I have XM radio & I listen to audio books to help with the commute. I find it really helps to focus on things other than the triaffc, and there’s lots more music options that I want to listen to than what the radio plays (totally worth it!)

  30. Alexandra says:

    ! I have figured out my radio sttoains line-up of songs, because they play the same thing every single day! And why have I not been getting your blog updates in my reader? Did your URL change? I missed it (and added this URL into my reader)..but I love the new layout!

  31. Rinny says:

    I’m with you Kristen, I love pumpkin this time of year, and I am not genittg sick of it! LOL in fact, every time I think of what I should bake next, I think about something that has pumpkin in it. At least we’re genittg our Vitamin A and Beta Carotene in, right? Better just be careful we don’t turn yellow is all oh and your mom’s soup looks great, can’t wait to see the recipe Pamela recently posted..
