Study shows that children who eat fast food have less healthy diet Fast food consumption may be a contributing factor to increasing obesity rates in children, according to a new report in "Pediatrics" jour- nal. The article is summa- rized by Marla Reicks in the February 2004 issue of "Nutrinet," published by the University's Department of Food Science and Nutrition. Reicks is a nutritionist with the U of M Extension Service and you can find her article at http;// incr. The researchers used a nationally representative sample of over 6,000 chil- dren and adolescents ages four to 19. They examined diet quality and compared values between children who ate fast food during a one-to two-day period and those who did not. The children who ate fast food consumed more total energy, fat, carbo- hydrates, sugars and sugar- sweetened beverages; but less fiber, milk and fewer fruits and non-starchy veg- etables. "Consumption of fast food among children in the U.S. seems to have an adverse effect on dietary quality in ways that could increase risk for obesity," the journal article says. "In light of these find- ings, measures to limit mar- keting of fast food to children may be justified," Reicks says.
