Reblogged:from Huffington Post                                                                                Wake-up call to parents: Children’s fast food meals to avoidLet’s face it: we all love fast food kids’ meals. Kids love them for the toys and packaging; parents love them because they’re easy and convenient. Plus, when they include apples and cheese, they have some nutritional value, right?Well, not exactly, according to the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine. According to PCRM, the meals are loaded with sugar and  sodium, and really offer very little nutritional value. They’ve come out with a list of the 5 worst “healthy” fast food kids’ meals. See if some of your favorites are on the list, but remember, the best  advice…everything in moderation.                                                                                                                                                                                           The Committee says that certain fast  food kids’ meals marketed as “healthy” are anything but. “Frankly,  passing off these meals as ‘healthy’ ought to be a crime at a time when 16.9 million American children and adolescents are obese,”  says  PCRM president Dr. Neal Barnard. “The focus on junk food targeted to  kids is important, given how miserably the fast-food industry has failed to live up to its promise of self-regulation.” Here Is a link to the video http://shine.yahoo.com/parenting/wake-up-call-to-parents-worst-fast-food-kids-meals-that-will-surprise-you.html  How often do you treat your kids to fast food meals?                                                                                                                           Eating, Fast food, Food, Happy Meal, Health, Healthy Ways to Lose Weight, Human nutrition, International Food Information Council, Kids’ meal, McDonald, Neal D.
