Fast Food Joints to Blame for Obese Kids?

Fast Food Joints to Blame for Obese Kids?

 

By Elton Camp





McDonald’s is sometime singled out for blame

Of other similar places we can claim the same



Their food is filled with calories, fat and salt

And to eat such worthless tripe, nobody ought



But to say this is the main reason kids are fat

It would be very hard to go along with that



Ronald McDonald doesn’t drag them in the door

And say, “Eat our fattening food and nothing more.”



It is the parents alone who have the right to decide

That to the fast-food place, kids they’ll take a ride



It is only reasonable and sensible that we expect

Little ones will eat the type food that parents direct



And there are now far better offering to decide

Not just hamburgers and some salty, greasy side



So the blame for obesity let’s put in the right place

If a little kid’s too fat, it is to the parents’ disgrace
