My SIL gives her 2 and 5 year olds McDonalds all the time. I watch them during the week part-time. If she drops them off around lunch they always come with a happy meal w/soda. If they come in the early am she sends them over with pop tarts. neither kid drinks milk ever, she says to give them juice. When the dad picks them up at 5 he stops at Mc donalds or KFC on his way home and buys supper for them. I think its wrong. But I have never said anything to her and dont plan on butting in, its her children. My kids are 1.5 and 4. They never have had fast food or soda. we drink milk, juice only if we go somewhere and are out and about I dont want milk sitting in a sippy cup too long. I cook food for my children, meat veggies etc. I am not totally against fast food, I just think she is too lazy to cook. I choose not to offer it to my kids, but if people do it once in awhile I see no problem.Kids need normal diet to grow!! Agree???

I'm guilty of hypocrisy, I'll eat Mickey D's every now & again, like 2 times a mo but refuse to give it to my dd. The level of cleanliness, the grade of the meat, the "nutritional" value of the food, the possibility of food poisoning....no fast food for my kid! I agree w/ op, what you teach them now about food will stay w/ them for the rest of their lives. What does that teach kids about food when we're just too lazy to cook them something nutritious?
