15 years on nothing but chicken nuggets

Horrified doctors learned of the teenager's chronic 15-year addiction after she collapsed and was rushed to hospital struggling to breathe.

Factory worker Stacey, who has never touched greens or fruit, was found to have anaemia and swollen veins in her tongue.

Yesterday she was recovering at home after being put on an urgent course of vitamins which started in hospital with injections. But despite medics begging her to change her diet she STILL cannot get enough of chicken nuggets.

what the fuck is wrong with people? how can the parent allow this?

Sadly, it's not terribly out of the ordinary, but rather an extreme version of a pretty typical diet.

Aar_Canada 01-26-2012 10:59 PM

Well, they are tasty.

Really, this has more to do with obsession than the North American diet. Like those people who eat chalk or plastic all day.

I haven't had a chicken nugget since i was a kid. I never understood the appeal. They tasted ok if you drowned them in whatever sauce you get, but beyond that i'll take a BigMac, Big Extra, QP w/cheese or any burger + fries from McDonald's before McNuggets.

jeffb 01-26-2012 11:22 PM

She's 17 and has been eating pretty much nothing but McNuggets for 15yrs?

Blame the parents!!

She once tried starving Stacey to get her to eat more nutritious foods — but to no avail.

The chalk and plastic thing wasn't the best comparison. I guess I meant that it's an addiction more than anything. More than a bad food habit or a simple unhealthy choice.

What the fuck, how can you only eat mcnuggets? They're not even that good.

Windex 01-27-2012 12:46 AM

McNuggets are expensive.... must be rich :police:

if I eat McDonalds 3 days in a row I get sick of it and won't touch it for 2 weeks. Don't know howw she did it.

Nites 01-27-2012 01:46 AM

I can't remember the last time I've eaten McNuggets. Must have been at least 5-6 years ago.

exactly. you cant control her when shes 17 but as a parent you are responsible for what your child eats. how can you allow the child to eat that crap when shes 2? this is mind baffling to me.

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.

I am craving some chicken nuggets right now actually.

as for 2 year olds and their eating habits, it's true that sometimes parents are just happy to have their kid eat anything. There are times when my dauther has one bite of something and then says it's gross and doesn't want anything else. It's the way it goes. She's never had McDonald's yet though. maybe i should try though...

My son's a picky eater and I agree, sometimes you just want to see them eat something. He loves chicken (yay!), stew (yahoo!), scallops (boo!) and salmon (double boo!) though so I try to include those as often as I can. He actually doesn't care for McDonalds and said the other day that he doesn't like french fries. Whaaaaa? This is not my child. Even with pizza he's like, meh.

Just turned 4.

my daughter (2) likes rice and most meats and sometimes tomatoes. If it's anything else she pushes it away, says it's gross and demands that we take her out of her chair. Meal time is fun.
