Sarah, I think it’s absolutely hilarious that anyone would be naive enough to imagine it’s worth the effort to distinguish between one kind of fast-food slop and another. That’s like arguing over whether it’s better to cut off one’s right leg or one’s left leg. The fact is, anyone who cares about themselves would be making healthy food at home, not ordering some variant of McSlop. The illusion that “artisinal” slop is mildly less harmful than regular slop is woefully misguided. I have no idea what a Chuck-E-Cheese is, but the name alone is sufficient to warn everyone to stay clear. Inflicting such slop on one’s children would appear to amount to child abuse, or at the very least an astonishing disregard for their health.
