Kevin Federline wants his children to work at McDonalds.

The former back-up dancer says he wants his and ex-wife Britney Spears' sons Sean Preston, six, and Jayden James, five, to take part-time jobs when they reach 16 to help them learn about The Real World.

He said: ''I'll have them working at Micky D's. That's how we had to do it!

''I worked at a car wash, I worked at a pizza place. Things like that made me.

''I can be in this business now and I'm still the same person I was back then, because I know what I want out of life and how to treat people.''

The 33-year-old rapper - who split with Britney after just three-years of marriage in 2007 - is currently in Australia filming reality weight-loss show 'Excess Baggage', and believes giving his sons a normal life will help keep them grounded.

He told the Herald Sun newspaper: ''Preston and Jayden have missed out on so much of that with me and their mum being so busy all the time.

''Now we've both agreed - this is it, they are going to be at school (and) learn ... what it's like to be part of society as a normal kid.''

Kevin has so far lost 35lbs on the show, but suffered a health scare last month when he collapsed after training and was rushed to hospital with chest pains. Doctors later ruled out a heart attack and he was released the next day.
