The Michelin Man’s son eats a Value Meal

Posted: September 22, 2010 in Kids Eating Adult Meals

Sure it’s not original content, but what it really comes down to is that this kid is fat. Although it may be hard to tell for the parents, my guess is that it could have something to with the fact that this child is eating a meal that even adults should never eat.

Assuming this child only ate 1 order of Large French Fries and 1 Large Coca~Cola (what is actually pictured), read on to see how the meal stacks up…

Fries: 500 calories, 25 grams of fat, 350 mg sodium, 63 grams of carbohydrates.

Beverage (32 oz): 310 calories, 20 mg sodium, 86 grams of carbohydrates, 86 grams of sugars.

If I guess that the child added a salt packet and 1 packet of ketchup (as if 1 packet of ketchup would ever cover that amount of fries) then it adds 15 calories, 380 mg of sodium, 3 grams of carbohydrates, and 3 grams of sugars.

Totaling out to: 825 calories, 25 grams of fat, 750 milligrams of sodium, 152 grams of carbohydrates, and 89 grams of sugars.

If I assume that the child is 12 year old, 5 ft 0 in height, weighs 130 lbs, with less than 30 minutes of physical activity per day – then the caloric intake for him should be 1800 calories, and his extra fats & sugars should be limited to 195 Calories. Source

According to a brief article on, “an ‘average’ 12-yr-old male of 88 pounds” will need “about 2,000-2,200 calories per day.”

You can figure out anything else that you want to know on your own, but I thought this horrid display of parenting should be shown…even if it’s a common internet image/meme.

Oh, and here’s where McDonald’s hides their nutrition info:

    This childs blood circulation must be at a ridiculously slow rate. I would even venture to say that in this picture atleast one of his arms are numb….

    I love fat babies as much as the next guy but this kids got a regulation size Labor James jersey on! What about fat kid part two sitting next to him. Both of these kids were twins in Utero but ate the other baby before they got out!
