High-Calorie Kids' Menus

From ABCNews.com:

. . . according to some health advocates, letting kids eat at some fast-food restaurants can be downright dangerous because of the calorie content of the foods they serve.

"A restaurant meal is a mine field," Mike Jacobs of the Center for Science in the Public Interest, or CSPI, told "Good Morning America." "It's junk everywhere and the explosions are going to be in your stomach, your heart."

According to an investigation by the CSPI, in most chain restaurants, more than 90 percent of the kid's menu meals packed way more than the recommended 430 calories per meal.

McDonalds' may be the worst. I took my son in there the other day and I was shocked when I later read the data on all the calories that were in his meal.
