McDonald’s UK CEO: kids are fat because of video games

Filed under: Uncategorized — doctorfeelgood @ 8:48 am

Steve Easterbrook, the CEO of McDonald’s UK, says that video games cause obesity — not his nutritionally void, heavily sweetened, processed junk that’s voraciously marketed to kids:

But he made special mention of the popularity of games – and said they have reduced the amount of time young people spend outdoors “burning off energy”…

“Then there’s a lifestyle element: there’s fewer green spaces and kids are sat home playing computer games on the TV when in the past they’d have been burning off energy outside.”
