What's in a Nugget??

Most children can recognize the golden arches by the time they are 2 or think that a happy meal is a treat.

I wonder if people really knew what was in the "food" would they still feed it to their kids or even themselves?? 

Here are some fun facts about McDonald's chicken nuggets:

  • ONLY 50% of the nugget is actual meat
  • The other half is corn derivatives, sugars, leavening agents and synthetic ingredients
  • Dimethyl polysiloxane is in a nugget: this is a type of silicone used for anti foaming.  (there are so many things wrong with that)
  • Tertiary butylhydroquinone (TBHQ) is a petroleum based product! 

Mc Donalds and all fast food should be eliminated.  People turn to fast food because of the price and convenience, but they don't consider the consequences.  Eating fast food TWICE a week doubles your risk of developing insulin resistance along with obesity and heart disease risks!!  Why would you want to put yourself in that danger and why would you want to subject your children to that??

THINK ABOUT WHAT YOU EAT!  Where does it come from?  What is in it? Just because it cost under $2, is it worth it?  Do I want my child eating this?

The true healthy diet for children and adults is VEGETARIAN!  Give your child the best health advantages.
