A Birmingham, England teenager who ate exclusively chicken nuggets for the past 15 years collapsed and was rushed to a hospital, a British newspaper reported. The young girl claims to have never tasted fresh fruit or vegetables. Now at 17 years old she is anemic and malnourished. While her diet provided ample calories, it left her severely deprived of most vitamins, minerals and antioxidants.
PositiveTip: Variety in the foods we eat, even a relatively small daily variety of fruit, vegetables and grains supports good health.
