Grab the spotlight at McDonald's annual shareholders meeting yesterday challenging CEO Don Thompson on the -- -- effects of it's cuisine you can call that take a listen.
And -- -- -- -- I'm I'm me yeah even I didn't get an iron back.
-- yeah ain't happening to turn out to candy apple.
I don't think back in ninety economy -- didn't eat it and didn't let him like you need going kayaking again.
That's right nine year old -- grilling McDonald's over serving kids junk food but -- it McDonald's responsibility to sell only tofu burgers.
Or is -- instead responsibly of parents to insist their kids eat healthful foods.
Let's talk -- -- Carlton she is a certified dietitian and she joins me now thank you for being with us.
So what do you think of what happened at the shareholder meeting and do you think this was staged or sincere.
Well I love this girl I think she's totally isn't there.
I praised her mother for bringing -- in a way where she knows the difference did healthy food and tell.
-- Between healthy food and junk food.
But is it McDonald's responsibly stop advertising to kids all together.
I don't think anyone to -- doing predatory marketing.
I think you know Ronald McDonald -- now like the big bad wolf he should be trying to lure people in.
Making them think that there is getting a -- when they're really getting is diabetes.
But -- No nine year old girl can walk into McDonald's alone and ordered cheeseburgers she's with her parents.
So it really doesn't matter death at the mcdonalds is advertising with messages aimed at kids.
I do believe there's no we're not going there.
And I think the parents just say now but I don't know if you've ever been in a car the nine -- this screaming and yelling for hours and hours because they want that -- -- -- -- Is very all the -- noted children sometimes -- mother actually called me today.
Tell me -- exact same thing when she -- that she said.
Sometimes you just can say no and no and so you just can't say anymore and you give -- I do believe that it is the parents' responsibility.
But I do believe that they make it harder on the parents and 8000 uses everything is there an apparent.
By not marketing to their children -- Don't get -- come on -- -- -- -- -- thing I feel like mcdonalds if -- this is a rather old outdated complaint McDonald's has 1% low fat milk has.
Fat free chocolate milk it introduced apple slices instead of French Fries and happy meals it's got grilled chicken -- I mean -- it runs public service ads on the Disney Channel I see him all the time when I watch for my daughter telling kids to get out there and exercise.
This is not a bad actor it's bad parents it's a problem here.
Okay both fat chocolate nut is filled with sugar when they take -- -- -- that they're sticking a lot singer.
This strawberry syrup is -- red forty Brent forty is banned in other countries -- making children get attention deficit disorder and I think not been as a -- -- bottom -- if you you -- reading and things are you to jail.
For fifteen years and not John.
But the point if you use that ingredient where you go to jail for fifteen years.
-- thing apart and set a plan and good for the country that banned chewing gum the company.
Are you holding this.
-- -- -- -- No actually about a hundred different countries as one of the -- -- that we go overnight but Richard -- let me shift thirteen about it.
There's other greens that karma color against -- carcinogenic in a lot of their products you know -- just corn syrup.
You know I think what you're you're you're very.
Fine person and and -- well intended but.
If you act as if once McDonald's and Wendy's and all these big -- -- stop advertising to children.
And children will stop demanding their parents take them to eat junk food that's not gonna ever happen as a result -- it.
It it will help.
Because the last time the children are seeing this around and and being tempted by that but little toys inside there to stop pestering their parents and make it easier on the parents to make smarter choices.
I think parents are perfect this idiot parents going in -- buying the breakfast by themselves -- no child there and they have no excuse.
I mean it again it's not.
No insane parents apartment but my point was that the parents -- the problem here not Mickey -- you -- let my -- -- alone all right thanks for being with us today.
They're very much and have a great holiday we can mirror.
