It's not the nuggets.... It's the Macaroni and Cheese.

Beware the mac and cheese.


I second this! My kids = mac and cheese, or grilled cheese sandwiches. If I take them to any chicken place, it is Chik-Fil-A. My older daughter doesn't even get chicken, she gets a yogurt parfait with fruit.

I agree. My kids will not order anything else but chicken nuggest or chicken tenders when we go through the fast food drive. I remember eating cheeseburger Happy Meals as a kid but not the chicken nuggets. So weird now that you mention it.

I know kids that throw tantrums unless you give them chicken nuggets. Start crying, kicking, etc. Bad part is the parents giving in.

Hm...well I know plenty of little kids that love other things besides chicken nuggets?

I watched some documentary over the weekend about General Tso's Chicken and apparently the guy who invented Almond Chicken here in the USA had McDonalds come knocking one day. They wanted his recipe for his small, bite-sized battered and fried chicken pieces. He said no.

A year later the McNugget came out...

I do love a good hot pocket now and then. They have chicken pot pie one that's surprisingly good.

My 20 month old won't eat any meat at all though. Just yogurt, mac and cheese, pizza, oh, and ice cream.


Won't? At that age they have to eat what you feed them. I would just like to say my two were raised on good healthy food and no junk, they are athletes and in perfect condition in the their 40s now, both were in the gifted program all through school,food is what a person is built from. Very important to feed growing ones right.

while some will say that forcing your kids to conform to your desires for them teaches them, others will say that the act of forcing kids to do things creates trauma that decreases their overall quality of life.

I know that forcing a kid to eat somthing can be traumatizing. Sitting at a table for hours on end, not being allowed to eat nything else until you gag on the food you don't like....

Some kids are happy to eat everything. I was one of those. My youngest won't touch a veggie. And the act of forcing him to do so at daycare certainly didn't help his excessive defiance to authority. Making him gag and vomit just so we could force authority over him just never felt right to me.

My wife and I have been well served using what we call "the twenty rule." I don't remember where we first heard about it or read about it, but we found that (at least with our now 4 year old) it's best not to FORCE a young child to try something. However, usually by offering him something regularly, by the 20th offer he will try it. From that point, he either likes it or he sincerely doesn't. If he doesn't I see no reason to force him to eat something he doesn't like.

Now consider this...thanks to the new trade agreement American chickens can now be further processed in China and still have a U.S.A. label on those nuggets.
How that's even financially productive, I can't even suss out. But when the chicken processing plants here all shutter up, we'll be that much more dependent on China.

If you have several generations of kids addicted to nuggets and other crappy Chinese made products, there's no war with China, no matter what they do.


I wish people would think about what they eat.
I have no proof but I have noted in each large avian flu outbreak including the ones in the US millions of chickens slaughtered, the price of chicken "products" goes down and chicken fast food advertising goes way up. If you own a business you can look and see they should not be making a profit, but if sick slaughter chickens were sold after bleach/ammonia processing and the meat sludged down to a paste for "nugget forming" you could make a killing even at the extreme low prices at the end product.

They admit that it is not economical to send chicken to China from growers in the Us for process yet they do. I figure the USA would not allow flu laden chicken to be processed even if the end product has no virus. Chinese chicken is served in our schools lunches!

We should not forget their record.


“The Chinese government shot the people who did that,” she says—but not before six infants were killed and more than 50,000 babies were hospitalized. “I can’t even imagine who would put melamine in baby formula




certifying Chinese facilities to process U.S.-raised poultry for sale back in the States.




Tony Corbo, a lobbyist at the nonprofit public interest organization Food and Water Watch, followed the decision closely, because food processing in China was notoriously poor. Chinese authorities had identified insecticide-soaked hams, soy sauce made from human hair and, in 2004, fake milk powder that gave babies the sometimes fatal “big head disease” (so named because it caused their heads to swell and bodies to wither). Normally, Corbo says, such a decision from the White House could take “months if not years” to come through. But just one day later, the White House gave its approval. Corbo was puzzled until, the following morning, China’s president at the time, Hu Jintao, visited then U.S. president George W. Bush in Washington, D.C. “[The approval] was a gift,” Corbo concluded. But for what, exactly, wasn’t clear.

That was me!

My siblings ate anything, so I was ridiculed and punished as a result.


I still have vivid memories of sitting at the table for extended time-outs, missing out on TV, etc.

I turned out OK, but I'm sure there was a better way to feed me.

Kids learn by watching us, if the food in the house and the food on the table is healthy kids learn to love the food, no force required. Starting to change that later may be problematic. But honestly, if your kid ONLY would consume poison would you say, it would hurt them to fight about it.

Its not poison. Im not sure using hyperbole helps in deriving a logical position.

But I WILL point out that mine, and any other childs, exposure is not limited to only me and my household. My youngest (now 17) was raised in a small community where he played throughout the neighborhood. He was a very active kid, not coming home until he knew waiting one more minute would get him grounded, then he just collapsed into bed.

He learned words we never use while playing with his friends. He'd come home wanting a new food or drink that he tried at his friends. His friends would do the same when they went home from our house. We are a seething mass of shared experiences on this planet.

Traumatizing, indeed! I can recall being forced to eat onions as a child and having some negative reactions to the protein in raw onions. I'd gag because my mouth and throat would be absolutely burning but according to pops I was just being picky.

I'm sorry when I was a kid there were no chicken nuggets


Chicken nuggets have been around since the 1940's. However, they were part of a government black project (operation "cluckbook") and were not released to the public until the PTB thought we were "ready".

The "new" snack/junk food we see today is at least 20-30 years obsolete. What they have in store for us in the future would blow your mind!



Can you please elaborate on operation "cluckbook"?

I am very interested and Google is not giving me anything to go on.

Also, please elaborate on what they have in store for us in the future. Me and my family eat food, so any insight would be helpful.

Thanks in advance.


Enjoy the flowers for your effort.

Well I guess it depends on how far it goes.

What really gets under my skin is seeing parents scold their children for not eating something and then watching them set stuff aside on their own plate.

They didn't learn anything from it, they just grew old enough to choose what they like.

Forgive my inability to spot humor. Obviously it was wasted on me.

I had not considered if my flowers were GMO or not. I am embarrassed. Hopefully they are not offensive. Please pardon me.

Mr bigfatfurrytexan, I hope you will except one of my favorites. Its natural, and very rare.

We only make ours eat if it's something he's asked for and we know he has eaten happily before. Generally, you can tell if he's refusing because he really doesn't like it or because he wants to do something else which is more often the case. In the latter instance, he gets to eat because otherwise we get the endless rounds of "I'm SOOOO hungry!" later on if we don't make him eat at least part of it.

And yes, ours is a mac & cheese addict, and he is liable to tell us he doesn't like it if he thinks it will get him to something he thinks he'd rather do. So, it is one of the things we will make him eat at least some of before he goes free.

On the bright side, he's never yet met a lengua taco he'll turn down.

When was the black rose finally a real thing? I thought they were a myth....same as a blue tulip?

On another note...I had a mate that used to work for tegal chicken here in NZ,and some of the things he used to tell me made me sick.......like they hang the chooks from their feet on a conveyer belt,then they flow across a bench with a blade that usually cuts their neck artery,then they are dunked into scalding water ready to pluck....but some arent dead,they call them redskins he said. After that I got my own broiler chooks and grew them and processed them myself. If you want a kid to stop eating nuggets....show them a video of how they are made....from MRM....mechanically recovered meat...........nasty pinking paste that looks real yummy.
