Children exposed to “maternal junk food” in the womb or early in life may find it harder to resist an unhealthy diet as they grow older, say the researchers.
Dr Stephanie Bayol, from the Royal Veterinary College in London, said: “Our study has shown that eating large quantities of junk food when pregnant and breastfeeding could impair the normal control of appetite and promote an exacerbated taste for junk food in offspring.”
However not all the experts agree, Doctor Ronald Henry McDonald of McResearch Ltd – (11 – 59 High Road East Finchley, London N2 8AW) for example, states, ” there is no such thing as junk food, if children get fat and die , that’s their own fault, we,…. I…I mean the fast food industry cannot be blamed. They certainly don’t promote their food to children.”
Hmm so a “Happy Meal” (including free toy ) advertised by a clown giving away brightly coloured balloons is supposed to appeal to whom…? George W. Bush ?… Not me though, I’ve seen “IT,” Pennywise, the dancing clown scared the B’jesus out of me and no mistake.
But babies developing a taste for Big Macs ? I can just see McDonald’s execs rubbing their hands together with glee can’t you ? Hook em before they are even born. Scary…
“Oi Chantelle, the sprogs tryin’ to say Mummy “
“awww how cute, could be little Wayne’s first word ? “
“M-M-M-McDonalds , M-M-MCDONALDS ”
And sadly that’s slightly worse than Motherf***er in my book.
