Because so many teens eat at fast food restaurants, this video is designed to meet them on their own turf and give them the tools they need to make smarter and healthier decisions, including avoiding fast food restaurants altogether. Using an entertaining quiz format, viewers learn about the dangers of eating too much over-processed, sugar-laden and fat-packed fast food. Your students examine the calorie counts and nutritional breakdown of many fast food staples to demonstrate the overabundance of fats, trans fats, salt and calories in their favorite meals. Program then compares typical items on menus from different fast food restaurants. Viewers also learn that you can actually make smart choices at the fast food counter because not all fast food is bad for you. Weight control, balanced diet, vitamins and nutrients can all be part of a smart, limited fast-food diet.
