  • My kids are 13, 5 & 1 and they eat fast food about 0 times a week. Since I made them watch Super Size Me, my 13 year old in particular is a bit wary about fast food. The french fry thing especially freaked him out.

  • 10 months old and the closest she has gotten to fast food was some a couple french fries at a restaurant a week or so ago. And I plan on keeping it that way...we don't eat much fast food in my house, its a treat, and it will be for her too.

  • I have a 9 & 5 year old, they eat Mcdonalds or BK once a week. Is that too much?

  • our kids are 5, 4, and 2 1/2 and maybe a couple of times a month (if that at all). Although they only thing they eat that is bad is the chicken nuggets or the hamburger. They always get fruit or yogourt and diluted lemonade with their meals. Half the time they would prefer a fruit parfait over a kid meal lol. Our kids are very much healthy eaters...much more than momma and daddy lol

  • My kids are 14, 9, 5, 3, and 19 mt old twins......they eat fast food about once every 2 months....if that. It is too expensive for our whole family to eat out. And they know that it is horrible for them, so they hardly even ask for it.....which makes it easy for me!! LOL
