What is Actually In Fast Food?Paige Turner
The appeal of fast food is unmistakable. It’s quick, cheap, and plentiful across the United States. But do you actually know the nutritional facts behind the alluring photography and catchy marketing?
This eye-opening video shows the nutritional value of some of fast food’s most popular menu items and compares it to a standard, 2.000 calorie diet.
As this video proves, the fast food industry has a huge influence on nutrition in the United States. A great deal of their marketing goes towards children and busy families. Given that their food is often lacking in vital nutrients while being simultaneously calorie-dense, these foods are not wise choices for a growing mind and body of a child.
