They call them "Big Kids" meals for a reason
Straight from the department of "I could have saved you a lot of money and just told you that", a study from the Center for Science in the Public Interest states that "Nearly every possible combination of the children's meals at Kentucky Fried Chicken, Taco Bell, Sonic, Jack in the Box, and Chick-fil-A are too high in calories", according to this Washington Post article.
Really now? You mean that a double cheeseburger and fries with a chocolate milk - the elements of Burger King's "Big Kids" Meal - are high in calories? Or what about grilled cheese, fries and a slushie - the contents of a Sonic "Wacky Pack" - you mean that's bad for you?
Of course, the National Restaurant Association fired back by saying the report "fails to acknowledge the essential role of nutrition education, physical activity and parental responsibility in childhood nutrition - good eating habits and healthy living must be established in the home."
You know, they're absolutely right. Good eating habits and healthy living must be established in the home - with parents not bringing their kids to these restaurants in the first place.
