Despite noise of being healthy, fast food remains true to origins
The Kansas City Star
If you go into a fast-food restaurant, there will be healthy items you can buy for yourself and your kids.
But most people want the good stuff. A Center for Science in the Public Interest report showed that 97 percent of children’s meal options at fast-food chains do not meet its nutritional standards for kids, The Kansas City Star reports.
That’s for kids ages 4 to 8. The restaurants provide products that people want, and that includes burgers, fries and other finger food that entice kids.
The retaurants advertise the healthier options, but what appeals to kids is what sells. Unfortunately that feeds the national epidemic of kids and their parents being overweight and obese.
