'Nothing tastes as good as skinny feels''

It's been the slogan for Pro Ana websites, then in 2009 thinsprations Icon Kate Moss caused outrage and raised eyebrows when she said the famous motto of Anorexic's  'Nothing tastes as good as skinny feels''.'Dangerous': A children's T-shirt bearing Kate Moss' motto is being advertised and sold on www.zazzle.co.ukNow there is company that is making t shirt with with the  worrying motto. Also on the same website you can buy babygrows that have slogan '' Please don't feed the model''Don't feed the baby? A babygrow on the same site bears an equally inappropriate print

The company that makes the T Shirts and babygrows are US based company called Teen Modelling.
In the UK its sold on www.zazzla.co.uk.
Beat (Beating Eating Disorders UK) spokesperson said  ''the sale of the fashion items aimed at children was 'dangerous. We absolutely disagree with what this company and its website is doing. Using children to model this kind of pro-anorexia product is clearly and plainly wrong.This isn't just because these children are at an impressionable age, but also because we know that pro-anorexia sites share close links with pornographic websites.'
BEAT added that it would like to see The Advertising Standards Authority use its new powers regulating of internet advertising to require www.zazzle.co.uk to remove the T-shirt pages advertising the products that are potentially harmful to children. Beat with other UK eating disorder experts has asked the for ban of the t shirts.
The BEAT spokesman added: 'It’s clearly a very dangerous message and one that should not be reaching girls at a young and impressionable age.
