I know people who have gone long stretches of eating McDonalds daily. It's the NA diet of convenience, not about a psychological aberration.
As for eating this shit at 2? Is that really so out of the ordinary? There are a ton of parents happy to see their 2 year olds eating anything of any nutritional value. Of course this case takes it to a ridiculous extreme, but look at what kids are served in a lot of schools, right through University - and you'll probably see a lot of nuggets ingested. As a society we've really lost touch with what food is. People eat out of cups while commuting. I know if I had not learned the joys of cooking real food, I'd be in very bad shape myself right now.
