    I agree in sentiment, but it's too weak of an argument to hold up.

    A child will see the Toy and pester his parent/s for that Toy, the child does not realise that the Toy is an incentive for the child to badger the parent into purchasing the 'food'.
    So yes it is primarily the parent who needs to say NO.
    It is also the parents responsibility to provide nutricious, interesting, good tasting and healthy food to the child.

    by the time you reach an age of awareness where you learn that your eating habits are poor, you are then obese ... and still dependent on the non-nutritious foods provided at home

    from your posts, it would seem that you believe people are born with the knowledge and the means to live well, right out of the birth canal

    They didn't, I had a mom who put butter in on everything and a father who lived on steak and potatos, somehow I made it.

    Something interesting:

    Junk Food 'Addiction' May Be Real - Yahoo! News
    Part of the problem is we are biologically programmed to seek out foods like junk food because they are high calorie foods that give lots of short term energy. We eat the same way we tried to when we were still primates but we use less than a fraction of the energy we consume and thus we get fat.

    MacDonalds and Burger King and KFC meant my mom didn't have to cook for a bunch of kids maybe one day a week . And no dishes to wash. Although we kids washed the dishes.

    There is nothing better for children to eat than a double whopper with cheese, onion rings, and a chocolate shake. If they throw in a toy it will bring them joy.

    Exactly. There is a reason my children (ages 5 and 6) prefer Subway to McDonald's. We (Daddy and Mommy) eat that and from a young age, our girls did too. Not only do they like it, we eat it after our Wednesday evening runs on the track. Why can't other parents wake up and raise their own children rather than have the nanny state raise their own in addition to mine???

    To play devil's advocate: Not everyone has the time or money to make the ideal choices.

    Working two and sometimes three jobs means that often a homecooked meal simply is too costly in terms of time and energy. Also, for what I'd pay to make a good homecooked dinner, I could probably get one or two meals at McDonalds. This means if my budget is limited, my choices are limited.

    A lot of the reason people GO to McDonalds or KFC or Jack in the Box is it's the most economical choice to make, if not the healthiest choice.

    I save money by not getting fast food - the argument that fast food is affordable food is bull. I can serve up a yummy, healthy meal for $5.00 for my entire family of 6.

    Same thing with time. When I'm taking a full semester of classes I cook only one day a week - Saturday. I spend the entire day pre-cooking meals so when it comes time to have dinner on Wednesday all I have to do is thaw or bake.
