The wrong messages to the wrong audience; fast food advertising directed at children has gone up, not down

Poor eating behaviors started early in life can have serious affects on adulthood. According to research results from Yale University’s Rudd Center for Food Policy & Obesity, ‘one-third of children and teens reported consuming fast food at least once a week, and 16% to 17% of adolescents’ caloric intake came from fast food restaurants.’ An abundance of calories in these meals comes from fat and sugar! Skip the drive-through with your kids and make a fun family meal at home instead. Chances are the meal you make together will be far more nutritious and memorable than what you pick up on the way home.
