Mcdonalds bad parent content…have you ?

My 6yo doesn’t like sweets either. He didn’t get chocolate till he was 3 and now only has a small amount occasionally. The small amount is “proper” chocolate not Cadburys and three squares can last him 10-15 mins.
At birthday parties he tries sweets and ends up spitting them out. We’re not complete dictators as he’s old enough to have a say and find out for himself now.
It depends on how you bring them up imho.Ro5eyMember
I reckon anyone who ate their own bodyweight in sprouts could manage 25m front crawl. I could probably get across the Channel in those circumstances.
She normally waits until she’s climbing all over my head during a Battle Royale to unlesh her by-product… Between that and the swimming, I don’t know what I’m more proud of?Posted 4 years agojamieaMember

Our 17 month old, who’s had a bit of chocolate cake a couple of times, saw my wife eating a stick of liquorice last week and exclaimed “chocolate!” “OK dear, yes that is chocolate” 😀

No problems with mcdonalds in Aus.
They have a cafe which has proper coffee and cakes reasonable toilets too so makes for a good rest stop.
God send when on the road as most places close at 5 and don’t open really early. I don’t eat the food unless there is no alternative but it’s a lot better than many places I have eaten.Posted 4 years agostumpy01Member

I wish there was a national network of say, Pret a Manger, close to major routes and with parking. A Jalapeno chicken hot wrap is £4.50, not much more than a top end burger at McDs.
They do wraps and salads in McDonalds….
They also do carrot sticks, bags of fruit and salads that kids can eat, if the occasional McD’s is really that bad.
I don’t get why McD’s seems to get all the bad press when there are soooo many other places dishing out crap too.
People never seem to moan about kids in Costa being fed blueberry muffins and other junk.
I had a double sausage & egg McMuffin meal this morning with a white coffee. It was delish.

Now and then is ok; its useful to point out how unhealthy some of the Mcd clients look and discuss why.
You could say this about almost anywhere – some of the ‘clients’ at the gym I go to look like they can barely make it from their car to the treadmill, let alone the salad aisle at Tesco.Posted 4 years ago
Therefore the gym is unhealthy??grahamgMember
This thread has kicked off a bit of nostalgia for me – on the rare occasions that my dad would take us shopping in Brum, the mac d’s milkshake was a very rare occasional treat (he is a proper fitness freak, so we knew it was a real treat for him too). I don’t think I actually had a full meal there until I was in my teens. Now I’m veggie, the menu is pure shite for me but I’ve got no qualms about going there inspite of the (mostly drastically outdated and originating in the US) negative propaganda.Posted 4 years agoTooTallMember
In our house McD is seen as the ‘unhealthy cafe’, so when we occasionally get a drive through we all sit there feeling guilty (kids included) whilst consoling ourselves wiht milkshakes and fries.
Worse, the household propaganda has worked so well that I almost have to make my kids go to McD, they mostly demand to be taken to Zizzi or Pizza Express.
Are you a middle class Catholic family? How very unpleasant to make kids feel guilty for something you are buying them. As for the alternatives they seek – they are such ‘nice’ chains without the common feel of a convenience food establishment, aren’t they?Posted 4 years agonealgloverMember

No it isn’t.
It would be far more useful to use positive role models (like Olympic athletes for example) and explain how they achieve what they do. Through good diet, exercise and hard work.
But pointing at fat people and using them as convenient negative role models to look down on is easier I suppose. 😐Posted 4 years agostanfreeMember
Can never quite work out If folk are actually serious on this site sometimes. For anyone appalled by taking there kids to McDonalds occaionally I think you really should get a grip. It’s probably not any worse than going to the chip shop once in a while and certainly not as bad as Subway.Posted 4 years agotomhowardSubscriber
Back in the late 80’s, early 90’s Mr and Mrs Howard wouldn’t take me to McDonald’s/Burger King/KFC as ‘they send money to people who make bombs’.
This has always stck with me, right though my employment at McDonalds, the 3-6 times a month I eat their food…..
Your kids are going to eat it eventually, like it or not….Posted 4 years agobinnersSubscriber

Are you new around here? The usual suspects never miss an opportunity to loftily voice their thunderous, righteous disdain for your plebby, contemptible lifestyle choices, as they look down their noses at you from their free-range, organic, soil association approved, wholemeal, smoke free ivory towers. 😉Posted 4 years ago
