Jamie Oliver shows kids what's in a chicken nugget
... and the results are horrifying.

I'll be the first to admit that I do, in fact, let my kids eat McDonald's every now and again. It is certainly not often, but it does happen, and they (of course) love it — or at least they did ... until I showed them this video. In the clip, Jamie Oliver, host of the new series Food Revolution
, shows kids exactly what's in your average chicken nugget. That, in and of itself is gruesome. But the truly appalling bit is when the kids actually want
to eat it when he's finished cooking. Take a look:
My kids were horrified. They turned up their noses, and my oldest proclaimed that she will never eat a chicken nugget again. Can I hold her to that? Only time will tell, but I do know this much: our days of hitting the fast-food drive thru, no matter how infrequently, have abruptly come to an end.
