It's no secret that fast food isn't exactly healthy food for your kids. But a new report reveals that even some restaurants with so-called "healthy meals," have their fair share of kiddie calorie bombs on the menu.
Senior Medical Correspondent Elizabeth Cohen breaks down the stunning numbers and the possible good options out there. “They took a look at 50 big restaurant chains and found 91% of them don't meet the nutritional guidelines of their own association, of the National Restaurant Association,” Cohen reports. “They don't meet those nutritional guidelines for kids. And in fact, some of the meals have more than twice as many calories as a child is supposed to get, depending upon the age of the child.” Cohen says the only restaurant that gets an “A” for doing a great job is Subway.
