Our take: Though eating out is a luxury, it's one that can be harmful to the health too if done in high amounts. In the United States, one third of children and teens are obese, according to Helen Thompson, from NPR. Thompson reports on a recent study that hopes to help policymakers tackle obesity:
"Walk into a fast food restaurant and it's probably safe to assume that whatever deep-fried deliciousness you eat, you'll consume more calories than you would if you ate a well-rounded home cooked meal. That's common sense.
But, public health officials are sounding the alarm about the effect that eating out often whether at fast food or full service restaurants is having on our diets, especially in children."
