"Obesity rates in children have doubled since 1980" there no one to blame but is there a way to fix it. The Restraint industries Kids Menu means serves fast food like French fries, fried chicken fingers, fatty hamburgers/cheeseburgers, and pizza. Restraints serve these food to children because there cheap for them. Not realizing that they are just serving the kids up with a greater risk to obesity, diabetes, and heart disease, and cancer . Children age two and older need to cut back on saturated fats and trans fat. Restraints usually only serve French fries as the only side dishes kids can revise then they offer them with all the free soda they can drink instead of free milk or juice. Some restraints give free biscuits/ breadsticks you can eat with a free complimentary dessert for children. Children should be consuming 1,500 calories a day that size diet has only enough for 17 grams of harmful fats a day. Out of twenty restraints only really two met the needs for a healthy diet for a children the other 18 were high in sodium, high calories, high in total fat grams. and high in saturated fat.
Red lobster served popcorn shrimp w/ fries and applesauce 590 calorie dinner. Outback steak house Boomerrang cheese burger w/fries and coke 970 cal. Cracker Barrel Macaroni n' cheese w/milk 650 cal.
The only two dishes that were ok to serve were cracker Barrel Grilled Chicken Tenderloins w/ carrots and o.j. 320 cal. dinner.
No wonder obesity rates in children have doubled, the convince of fast food for young children is becoming a epidemic, we are killing are own race.
