Fat

This morning I saw 2 things that made me want to cringe.  First I saw this:
 
If what you regularly feed your children has MORE fat and calories than a happy meal, you have serious problems.  
Then, I saw a woman ranting about why they don't make size 7 diapers.  For her 40lb 1 YEAR OLD!  For those of you who don't know how much a one year old should weigh, the average boy between 12 and 24 mos weighs 22 to 29 lbs respectively.  So even if her 1 year old was just about to turn 2, he's still morbidly obese for his age.  How can parents let this happen to their kids?  I really don't understand it.  
There's a few things scientists do know contributes to obesity, and that is overfeeding formula (you can't really overfeed breastmilk) and starting solids before 6 months of age.
I went to check on these "surprising" nutrition facts of happy meals and this is what I found.  Be forwarned, you may never want to eat Mickey D's ever again after this...
A 4pc Chicken Nugget Happy Meal with fries and chocolate milk has 580 calories and 26 grams of fat.
A Hamburger Happy Meal with fries and chocolate milk has 650 calories and 23 grams of fat.
A Cheeseburger Happy Meal with fries and chocolate milk has 700 calories and 27 grams of fat.
The average ADULT should consume no more than 65 grams of fat and 2,000 calories per day.  To feed a child this much fat and calories is absolutely disgusting.  Is it really that hard to cook a meal for your child?  No wonder kids these days are so fat and lazy!  No wonder the average adult in America is overweight!  
It's so sad that children suffer because their parents are lazy, selfish and fat.

Statistic:  For the average American child, 25% of their vegetable intake consists of French fries and potato chips.
