Chicken Nugget Diet Not Adequate

Is there a picky eater in your family? This story may be useful to back up your warnings to the child who won't eat anything but chicken nuggets or peanut butter sandwiches or bread. British 17-year-old Stacey Irvine was admitted to a hospital after she collapsed and had trouble breathing. It came to light that she had eaten hardly anything at all besides chicken nuggets since she was two years old.
Miss Irvine, who has never eaten fruit or vegetables, had swollen veins in her tongue and was found to have anaemia.

Medics gave her a series of injections and started her on an urgent course of vitamins.

But, despite being warned that she could die if she sticks to her nugget addiction, she still can’t resist the fast food.

Miss Irvine, who prefers McDonald’s treats but also enjoys KFC’s, told The Sun: ‘I am starting to realise this is really bad for me.’

That understatement is not news to Irvine's mother, who has been warning her for years that her diet would send her to a hospital. But Irvine had eaten other things -fries, chips, and an occasional piece of toast to go with her nuggets. Link -via Arbroath

Some parents act like they have no control over their children what-so-ever. At 17, sure it's hard to control what they eat, but she hasn't eating anything more substantial than chicken nuggets since she was 2 yrs old? What the... I don't even

The story is complete nonsense. If she'd really have lived on nothing but Chicken McNuggets, she'd have scurvy, rickets, beriberi, kwashiokor and a probably fatal calcium deficiency.

This is why the London tabloids get a bad reputation.
