Spanish toy company criticised over doll that refuses to eat

A SPANISH toymaker has been slammed by health campaigners for producing a doll that refuses to eat.

Nenuco Won’t Eat, which is on sale throughout Europe, turns its head away when a child attempts to spoon feed it.

It comes with a magnetic feeding spoon, and while at first it refuses the food, when the spoon is turned and pressed against the doll’s mouth a switch is triggered which makes it eat the food.

British health campaigners argue it encourages children to develop eating disorders such as anorexia.

But the manufacturers say the issue has been blown out of proportion.
