Abstract

Welcome to Public Health Moment from the University of Minnesota. More than 20 percent of adolescent males and females consume fast food more than three times a week. That’s according to research by Nicole Larson, an epidemiologist at the University of Minnesota. She tells us why this is a concern. <clip: “While there are some healthy options available…for the development of obesity.”>Larson recommends that young adults plan ahead and pack healthy options for eating during the day instead of relying on fast food restaurants. She adds that nutrition labeling at restaurants could help educate young consumers. <clip: “It’s important for us to think about how…less healthy options available at restaurants.”>With another Public Health Moment, I’m John Finnegan.
