"Hooked on chicken nuggets: Girl, 17, who has eaten nothing else since age TWO rushed to hospital after collapsing." *
Apparently this teenager has never eaten fruit or vegetables. Now she is in hospital with swollen veins in her tongue, has anemia and has been warned that she was killing herself.
You say, no way this can happen. I say, "Yes Way." Too many times I have has parents tell me, "My son/daughter will only eat chicken nuggets so that's what I give him or her. They refuse to eat anything else." I simply look at them and wonder who's the boss. Moms and dads, you have to guide your children away from the wrong decisions and to the right ones. Sometimes that is easier said than done, yet, the alternative can be deadly.
Keep in mind you may be working against addictions. Unfortunately, ingredients put in some foods are purposely habit forming. Take charge now and avoid disaster later. I am using strong words. Don't underestimate the consequences. Steer your kids into making better food choices today and tomorrow.
… for the health of your family,
P. S. Please pray for this girl.
