Diet Blog for finding thing one! Apparently one British mother thinks it’s totally fine to feed her 18-month year old at diet almost entirely of French fries. You got to see it, to believe it. James Tozer of The Daily Mail reports:
But despite being warned her daughter's future health is at risk, her mother Angela insists the toddler will grow up just fine.Clearly, this story is a lightening rod. It certainly shot Dr. Fuhrman out of a cannon! Here’s what he had to say:
Miss Boswell, 33, said persuading Courtney to eat healthier foods has proved almost impossible.
She said: 'Most of all she loves chips. I ate a lot of chips in chocolate sauce when I was pregnant with her so maybe it comes from that.
'I think she'll be fine when she's older - I'm not worried at all.
'People say she's getting podgy because her tummy sticks out a bit, but it's just a bit of puppy fat and she will grow out of it.'
Courtney, who weighs 2st 2lbs, or half a stone more than the average 18-month-old, will this week feature in Wednesday's ITV1 documentary, Britain's Biggest Babies.
The toddler, whose diet also occasionally extends to chocolate, crisps, cereal and Coca-Cola, is shown devouring a portion of chips in just under ten minutes.
If I was a child welfare judge, I would lock up this mother in a jail cell with a copy Disease-Proof Your Child and not release her until the book is read and she was quizzed on its contents.This woman is a freaking a whack job! It’s hard to believe people like this exactly exist! She needs to hear this podcast—stat! Dr. Fuhrman on Getting Children to Eat Well.
