They have just done a survey on young Australian children which shows that they are fast becoming the second fattest kids in the world (US the 1st). OMG I can't believe it the American fast food system has started affecting aussies. We have had fast food outlets for years but it has become a way of life here too. Now we have fat kids, that don't wear thongs (they wear runners in this stinking heat) and they don't need them because they don't run anywhere. ~ sad if you ask me we are loosing our culture. People talk about how bad other cultures are but the US culture of fast food and more fat the better has affected peoples health it is like a bomb. These kids won't make it to 45. Parents are to blame it is the easy way out. I refuse to let my kids have more than one fast food meal a month.
