Fast Food Craze Fast food restaurants today are either kiosks or recognizable quick service restaurants. Franchise operations such as McDonalds and Wendy’s have generated restaurant chains that offer standardized meals across the globe. Because of their affordability and popularity, fast food restaurants and drive-through outlets are popular. Also known as “sit-ins” and “upscale kiosks”, these restaurants cater to extremely busy adults by creating a distinct ambiance in which people feel comfortable. Very affordable, they may seem attractive to anyone hoping to save time and money, but ultimately fast foods slow us down.

Through the Mac Diet Activity, I have learned a lot about my eating habits. I generally try to eat fully cooked and healthy meals rather than filling up on junk food. Breakfast is definitely the most important meal of the day, so I almost always start the day off with big nutritional breakfast. However once lunch comes my eating changes. I usually buy a 16 oz soda at lunch time because it is always available and is so irresistible.
These burgers are a little pricey, but definitely worth it. Each description of the burger let you know what is on it and how it is made. The Hard Rock Cafe isn't just for those who are the hard rocking type, per say. It is a family based restaurant and everyone is allowed to attend. They do offer a full bar, but that is just for the grown ups.
Diet for one over the last few decades has changed dramatically as food has become more accessible and more affordable for the everyday consumer. In addition to the types of food that are available. Twenty years ago it was a custom to sit down at the dinner table as a family and eat a good healthy meal, today it is the exact opposite where people eat out at restaurants all the time and eat a lot of fast food. Which contributes to other factors such as calorie intake, fat intake, and other dietary factors that all contribute to childhood obesity. Because today’s society is so in love with “keeping up with the Joneses” so to speak everyone has to eat out at nice restaurants or feel that they need to take their kids to McDonalds for lunch.
If they aren’t attached to their phones or on You Tube, they’re watching television or playing Xbox. In addition to that, we are regular customers at our nearby McDonalds on game nights. As parents, we need to be aware of what we bring into our homes.

Chipotle offers tasty Mexican-style food for those customers who disdain McDonald’s, yet at a price that is low enough to capture many price-sensitive customers. Furthermore, by promoting a minimalist, tradition-bucking, efficient yet friendly image, it has successfully captured the loyalty of young, busy people such as college students looking for a cheap bite. However, Chipotle is more than simply the image of a mouth-watering burrito and with a three-word tagline. For over a decade, it has focused on sourcing its products in an environmentally sustainable way, ensuring that its poultry and meat products come from natural and organic sources, providing a fair wage to its employees and suppliers, and even going so far as to testify before Congress as an advocate for the prohibition of antibiotics in meat production. Unfortunately, most of Chipotle’s customers are unaware of its efforts at social impact.
Some popular and well known junk foods that we teenagers love are: Chewing gum (if not sugar free), any candy related to chocolate, cookies, potato chips, Drink lots of sodas including energy drinks, and eating at any fast food restaurants that are close by. When it comes to junk foods and drinks, learning how to control yourself is hard, but important at the same time. Nutritious meals are often being missed and replaced with these foods that are high in sugar and high in fat. Controlling what you eat is very important. When making your own food choices, junk food can have an effect on your appearance.
c. “Health food, natural food, and food sourcing connoisseurs”: drawn in by where the Chipotle’s ingredients come from and what is not in a Chipotle burrito. For example: rGBH. d. “College students”: a staple of the Chipotle market base and are attracted by the cheap and tasty food. They may stop in for lunch, dinner, or during late hours. They can be better targeted by focusing on locations near campuses, adding affordable menu options, and tailoring the ambiance of the restaurants.
In lunch lines, children are given a variety of chips, sodas, and schools have made it easier than ever to get a greasy pizza slice into the hands of students. So, are the nation’s lunch programs doing the best job to ensure their students get adequate nutrition from their lunches? Probably not. Children are naturally inclined to eat a bag of Doritos over an apple if it is easily available to them. In terms of beverages, like at El Portal Middle School in Escalon, California, they are attempting to get the students’ health back on track.
