I’m Not Sure if You’ve Seen This

So I’m not sure if a lot of you have seen this, but I saw it on CNN Eatocracy. And this disturbs me as much as the US considering pizza a vegetable. But so Stacy Irvine, 17, for the last 15 years of her life, has only eaten chicken nuggets. Chicken Nuggets from McDonalds, KFC, store bought. She would eat some french fries, by some twisted mindset I suppose would probably be the next thing the US will declare a vegetable serving, but she hasn’t eaten fruit or vegetables that she can remember. In addition to that she would drink soda, not necessarily water. This girl is not at all obese which I find incredibly interesting. But she does have a list of health problems such as Anemia, breathing problems and a deficit of all vitamins. The mother of the girl is now trying to get her to see a specialist and Irvine, who acknowledges that nuggets aren’t healthy has no plans to change her ways. As a parent, it’s first and foremost your responsibility to take care of your child’s health needs, which means getting them to eat real food. Secondly, why would you not take steps earlier, could you really not best a 2 year old? It’s called the Terrible Twos, of course she’s being difficult but eat or don’t eat. It’s an ultimatum I’ve gotten and I mean I’m picky but get a good dose of veggies and fruits regardless. So the lesson here is get a varied diet because it’s not healthy to eat only one of anything, even if it’s healthy. Second, again everything in moderation.

I'm a picky foodie in training. I can't stop talking about food, so writing about it seems like a normal transition. There are so many foods I don't like, and that's a bit of a problem. I don't really know how to cook but I love to bake. So I'm on a culinary journey and I want to invite everyone to join me.
