Chew on This is an expose of the fast-food industry and a nauseating disclosure of the fats, sweeteners, d textures, scents and colors that sizzle under the Golden Arches. Read this, and you have had your last Happy Meal. And should be commended for the fact that even in the face of such overwhelmingly bad news, it doesn't completely lose its sense of humor. The San Francisco Chronicle. With its discussion of alternatives.

Chew On This: Everything You Don't Want to Know about Fast Food, first published in 2006, is an adaptation of Fast Food Nation for younger readers by Eric Schlosser and Charles Wilson.

CHARLES WILSON: Chew on This. Everything You Don’t Want to Know About Fast Food. well, it’s the truth. came out of the desire to make kids aware of what they were eating, especially at a time when we know that one out of every three kids born in 2000 is expected to develop Type 2 diabetes, as high as two out of every three kids among certain ethnic groups. This is a public health disaster waiting to happen. and this is the side of the fast food industry told in our book that the fast food industry will never tell you itself. There are a lot of gross things in our book, and probably a lot of it is stuff that kids might not want to know.

This is a book about fast food and the world it has made.

Charles Wilson grew up in West Virginia and has written for several newspapers and magazines .

Charles Wilson grew up in West Virginia and has written for several newspapers and magazines, including the New York Times and the Washington Post. He has worked on the staff of The New Yorker and the New York Times Magazine and has rounded up beef cattle on horseback at his uncle’s ranch. The simple answer is this: the companies that sell fast food don’t want you to think about it. They don’t want you to know where it comes from and how it’s made.

Kids love fast food. And the fast food industry definitely loves kids. It couldn’t survive without them. Did you know that the biggest toy company in the world is McDonald’s? It’s true. In fact, one out of every three toys given to a child in the United States each year is from a fast food restaurant.

Not only has fast food reached into the toy industry, it’s moving into our schools. One out of every five public schools in the United States now serves brand name fast food. But do kids know what they’re eating? Where do fast food hamburgers come from? And what makes those fries taste so good?

When Eric Schlosser’s best-selling book, Fast Food Nation, was published for adults in 2001, many called for his groundbreaking insight to be shared with young people. Now Schlosser, along with co-writer Charles Wilson, has investigated the subject further, uncovering new facts children need to know.

In Chew On This, they share with kids the fascinating and sometimes frightening truth about what lurks between those sesame seed buns, what a chicken ‘nugget’ really is, and how the fast food industry has been feeding off children for generations.

Comments to eBook Chew On This: Everything You Don't Want to Know About Fast Food

Warning - Do not let your child read this book if he/she still believes in Santa Claus. My daughter was totally psyched about this book. So much so that she wanted me to read it when she was done. Until...she got to the part that said the only fictional character better known than Ronald McDonald is Santa Claus. She has decided that instead of being titled, "Chew On This: Everything You Don't Want to Know About Fast Food" that this book should be called, "Chew On This: Everything You Don't Want to Know About EVERYTHING."

I found the claims in "Chew on This" to be rather exaggerated (as were those in "Fast Food Nation"). The food available at a McDonald's or Burger King, or any other chain restaurant is healthful, and it is not uniquely prone to making people fat--unless they overindulge. Further, I wonder where the hamburger and steak and chicken we buy in the grocery store comes from? This book makes it seem as though only such restaurants get their beef from feedlot-fattened cattle, or their chicken from birds kept in cages, which I really doubt. The book is well written, and certainly will appeal to young readers' imaginations, but I think the views of the food industry are certainly skewed and inaccurate. I prefer positive nutrition messages--e.g., how to fit the foods one loves into a balanced and healthy diet.

Chew on This is an informational guide on the intricate workings of the fast food industry. Workings doesn’t just allude to the good though, it mainly talks about the bad side of the two faced corporations that have a bigger part in your life than you may think. This book accurately displays what we as consumers are faced with everyday: a choice. A choice to either support these monopolies, or to support small business and a sustainable future. This book is mainly cut into the past events that have led to today, the development of child advertising and exploitation, and the horrors of the meat packing and pork industries. Overall this book seems to be very factual and it was a quick read. At points it got a bit repetitive, but I guess that is necessary when you are trying to get your point across of not supporting these agglomerations of corporate greed. It is very surprising some of the details that come from this book. I think most parents and really anyone that reads this will be very touched by some of the stories about the youth of today and how they have negatively been affected by McDonald’s and its counterparts. It is conniving and deceitful of how these children are treated by these companies and on top of that we only get one side about America. Imagine the countless other third world countries that have wages close to nothing that have kids working for a better part of the day to help support their families. This book is just another account of some of the cruelties that need to be changed in the future. We can’t keep supporting the businesses that exploit the future leaders of our world.

Chew on This is written by the author of Fast Food Nation - it's like the young adult version of Fast Food Nation. According to Amazon, it's geared to children twelve years old/seventh grade and up. One word of warning - the secret behind Santa is revealed in this book. Probably not a problem for the target audience of this book but it was a problem for my nine-year old. He reads above grade level so he didn't have trouble reading or understanding this book but he still has a 3rd grader's ideas about Santa so I was disappointed that this book gave away the secret.

Other than that, I loved this book. It really focuses on the fact that fast food is marketed primarily towards children, in ways that I hadn't really thought of before. I knew my kids like McDonald's because of the Happy Meal toys and the Play Places but I never realized how calculated all the marketing was to be geared toward children, who would then drag their parents and grandparents to the fast food restaurants with them. I'm so naive!

It also discussed the practices of factory farming of which most kids are probably not aware. I also appreciated the discussion of how they make fast food taste good - all the artificial ingredients and so forth.

I was hoping that this book would turn my son off of fast food but I didn't get that lucky. However, I think the ideas in this book will continue to rattle around in his head and when he gets a little older his food choices will be affected by what he learned in this book. I was certainly turned off of fast food after reading this book! I highly recommend this book. It would be a great book for a family book club that could be the jumping off point for a family discussion about the family's food choices - I enjoyed discussing this book with my son quite a bit.
