To be annoyed that DP's family eat fast food every day?

I know I probably am BU and its none of my business what they eat but it's really been getting on my nerves - don't know if its the hormones making me more irritable than normal!
Me and DP are living with them until the tenants have moved out of our new house next month and I'm not kidding, every single day his mum sends his dad out to get her a McDonalds for her and his sister. His sister is 19.

They eat it every single day! AIBU to let it annoy me?

We're having our first baby in February and I think I'll be too worried to let baby stay overnight out of fear they'll just feed it McDonalds/other crap!

Are they overweight? Im Just curious....Im not sure how you can eat so much junk and not be feeling it and seeing it on your frame.

I had mcD about four times one month when I was preggers and was too ashamed (at the expense as well as the food) to tell anybody!

Yanbu. It'd piss me off too. Just Bleurgh to their food. We have a take out once a week to take the pressure off me cooking all week and dh's a lazy arse and that's our limit. We have friends who eat McDonalds and other take away food, almost on a daily basis.

We've to their house for bbq's and their fridge is nearly always empty every time, as they go get take out nearly every night. They have dc aged 5,7 and 9. And wonder why they never have any money. They are living mortgage and rent free ATM too.

Yes they are overweight.
I know next month when we are paying proper rent we will know how good we've got it at home but I'm craving my own space! There is 5 adults in a 3 bedroom house so as you can imagine no room.
I know they've been lovely in letting us live here and I'm not disputing that, that's why I feel so mean now sad
It just winds me up how his mum is always going on about how skint she is and how she's had to put all her debts into a debt management programme yet they can manage to spend £15 odd quid a day on fast food.

YABU but you know what - that would annoy me as well. The smell of the McDs in the house every night would drive me nuts! It's hard to be reasonable all the time smile
Just try and get out of the house more in the evenings, go swimming or whatever and think happy thoughts of having your own space next month. They sound like good and kind people though, letting you stay even though it must be quite strain for them as well.
