It’s so good to the have solid facts when it comes to nutrition and eating healthy. Knowing that fast food is causing asthma and other conditions is a darn good reason to cut out the crap and start hitting up the farmer’s market for your food.
I believe that kids should be allowed to have fast food because if they don’t then they might get some other sweets but that will kill them too
I agree. This seems like a helpful tool for any parent whose kids are being bombarded with fast food options that are fast and easy. We should take the time to teach them lessons of nutrition and be a good example by not taking the easy route with fast food!
To the point, articulate and very interesting,
