Incredibles Happy Meal Box
My sister got a happy meal from McDonalds yesterday. It was advertising the Incredibles - each side featuring stats on different characters. While looking at the box, I was alarmed by some of Violet's stats. The box says she is 5'4" and weighs 85 pounds. This puts her at a BMI (Body Mass Index) of 14.6 - any person with a BMI under 18.5 is considered to be underweight. A few months back, Mary Kate Olsen was put in a treatment facility for being about 95 pounds - and she's 2-3 inches shorter than Violet. I didn't think that this was a good body image to be portraying to young people who are already self-conscious enough about their weights.I was just wondering if anyone else had seen this and if anyone else had any thoughts on this.
