Because many teens eat at fast food restaurants, this video is designed to meet them on their own turf and give them the tools to make smarter and healthier fast food decisions. Using an entertaining quiz format, viewers learn about the dangers of eating too much over-processed, sugar-laden and fat-packed fast food. Participants examine the calorie counts and nutritional breakdown of a fast food jumbo cheeseburger meal to demonstrate the overabundance of fats, trans fats and high calorie content per serving. Program then compares typical items on menus from different fast food restaurants. Viewers 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.
