Fast Food Linked to Obesity in Kids

Close to one-third of U.S. children aged 4 to 19 eat fast food daily, which likely packs on about six extra pounds per child per year and increases the risk of obesity. This is not surprising considering that fast-food companies spend billions of dollars each year on marketing aimed at kids. The amount of fast food that children consume has increased fivefold since 1970. This is an alarming problem but not a hopeless one, as childhood obesity can be prevented and even reversed.
