Stacy Irvine is 17, and pretty much eats nothing but chicken nuggets.
Mostly the McDonald's kind, but store bought sometimes as well. She just loves, them, okay? Get off her back!
It's not like it's unhealthy or anythi — wait, she collapsed and was rushed to the hospital for breathing problems and anemia?
Okay, we take that back. Get on her back, because she's killing herself with her diet and it's pretty stupid. That might sound harsh, but come on: she even says she's never tasted fresh fruit or vegetables!
She had inflamed veins in her tongue, and was deficient of vitamins and nutrients that she had to be injected with them.
"I loved them so much they were all I would eat.I just couldn’t face even trying other foods. Mum gave up giving me anything else years ago. I am starting to realise this is really bad for me,’ she said. ‘My main meal is always chicken nuggets every day. McDonald’s chicken nuggets are my favourite. I share 20 with my boyfriend with chips. But I also like KFC and supermarket brands.’
We're glad she is realizing that, but it sucks that it took almost dying to learn something common sense knows easily.
There are a few morals to this story:
1. Don't live on chicken nuggets, because you can't.
2. Be a parent and don't let your kid only eat chicken nuggets. You're an adult, you're in charge.
