The First Study

Only 3 percent of kids’ meals served at fast-food restaurants meet federal guidelines.

Twenty-five percent of children aged 4 to 8 years consume fast food on a typical day. This is the first study to examine the nutrient quality of fast food meals in a major U.S. metropolitan market.

Fast-food companies are not required to sell nutritious meals. More than 65 percent sell too much fat. More than 75 percent are deficient in calcium, iron and vitamins.
