Most Teens Ignore Calories On Labels

With all the health conscious decisions and choice you can make, it seems that teens might not make the best ones when it comes to fast foods.

Even though by law, McDoanlds, Burger King and Taco Bell (just to name a few) post the calories of their menu items, most teens don’t even look at them. What has been found, is their considering what they choose to buy goes by what tastes best, and not what’s healthy for them.

The calorie labeling became a law in a lot of places, including here in the Capital Region. After it was posted on the menu, a majority of the teens never even bothered to look at the calories. By not being a little careful, this could lead to many health problems when they get older.

It’s not that fast food is really bad for you, as long as it doesn’t become part of your regular diet, all the time. As they say, too much of anything is not good for you.
