Book Cover - Chew on This by Eric Schlosser and Charles Wilson

Chew On This

Eric Schlosser’s Fast Food Nation and Chew on This: Everything You Don’t Want to Know About Fast Food are geared towards teens. Give your kid an incentive to read one or both of these books. My 11- and 13-year old kids loved these best-selling exposes and never wanted to set foot in a fast-food establishment again. Okay, they never set foot in fast-food establishments anyway, except to make a bathroom stop on a trip. They inspired my oldest daughter to become a vegetarian, and she later converted her sister. Written for preteens and teens, this is an excellent education in why you want to avoid all fast food. I overheard my daughter after she read Chew On This telling a friend regarding the friend’s sugar habit, “You know that children diagnosed with diabetes by the age of 8 shorten their lives by 25-30 years, don’t you?” (Heh heh, my evil educational plot is working!) Too bad the author states in the introduction that his favorite meal is a fast food burger.
