As parents, we try and feed our children as much healthy food as we can. I spent a long time last night trying to cajole Catherine into eating a delicious bean casserole thing that Christina had lovingly made. She ate it in the end, but it was an effort. (Rather like her father, she can detect healthy food at fifty paces and tends to set off in the opposite direction as quickly as she can.) Anyway, we do OK, thanks largely to Christina’s home cooking. We like to eat out with our children, but one place we’ve never gone to – at least not when I’m around – is McDonald’s.
Unfortunately it looks as if the George Family boycott is not having the intended effect. Apparently other people are still eating there. This is an image that was posted by a friend of mine (thanks, Dave) on Facebook a couple of days ago. It’s a map of the United States (obviously) showing every McDonald’s restaurant. As one of the FB commenters remarked, it looks like the whole country is going up in flames.
