Fast food, particularly food from McDonald's does not decay as "normal" food does. Also, you have to plan a trip to the gym after each value meal you consume just to ensure you don't gain weight from that one meal. It's been proven that dog food might be healthier than fast food.

Fast food menu options double; calorie counts remain high | Science Codex

Despite the fact that the variety seen on fast food menus has increased over the last few years, they're calorie counts have not. Fast food restaurants still, generally, offer huge servings of even seemingly healthy dishes, offering customers more calories in a single meal than they should likely be consuming in an entire day.

Nick Rogers's curator insight, November 20, 2013 6:22 AM

This is relevant to what we have learnt in PDHPE as it shows that a common occurance, young children drinking soft drinks, massively increases the risk of obesity. This is useful as it gives parents information as to why they shouldn't give their children soft drinks, as it can cause serious problems later in life.

Studies show that kids who eat fast food consume more sugar and carbs than kids who eat home-cooked meals.
