Stacey Irvine Only Eats Chicken Nuggets for 15 Years, Nearly Dies

26 Jan

Chicken Nuggets

How does any parent let this happen? 17-year-old Stacey Irvine collapsed last week after struggling to breathe and was taken to the hospital with serious injuries. Doctors found her body lacked nearly all essential vitamins and minerals before injecting her with high doses of various nutrients.

The young girl says she has never tasted fresh fruits or vegetables, and has been hooked on chicken nuggets since her mother let her try one at the age of 2. The UK teenager says she will occasionally vary her diet— with a slice of toast or a bag of potato chips.

In addition to serious vitamin deficiencies, doctors diagnosed Irvine with anaemia and swollen veins in her tongue. “McDonald’s chicken nuggets are my favourite,” she told several UK tabloids. “I share 20 with my boyfriend with chips. But I also like KFC and supermarket brands. My main meal is always chicken nuggets every day.”

Her mother said she once tried starving Stacey in an effort to get her to eat healthy food, but the technique didn’t work.

Probably not the press McDonald’s wants. The fast food giant had a disastrous social media campaign earlier this week.
