CSPI’s new study on kids’ menus
Center for Science in the Public Interest has a new study out on the nutrient composition of kids’ meals in fast food restaurants. Of course they are all (OK, just 93%) too high in calories. Of course the default option includes sodas (Subway is the sole exception). If calories were on menu boards, would parents think twice about ordering these things? Might be worth a try, given that the average child under 18, or so reports USA Today, eats 167 meals a year in restaurants.
