Nutrition: If you’re going to eat fast food, here are 6 things to consider - Los Angeles Daily News

If you’ve visited a fast food restaurant recently you may have noticed that in addition to burgers and fried food there’s been some nutritious items like salads, smoothies and fruit added to the menu. In order to meet the food preferences of more health-conscious consumers, the food offerings at these restaurants have evolved over the years. While healthier menu items have become more readily available, classic menu items have also changed over time. Considering the seemingly improved, more modernized food options available at chain eateries, is dining at fast food better for our health than it used to be?

Although fast food restaurants are trying to innovate and keep up with food trends by offering more fresh produce and new healthful spins on classic favorites, don’t be surprised if your fast food meal is still high in fat, salt and calories.

Not sure why a health-conscious person would opt for a fast food choice when there are so many other options. At least the fast food companies are trying to do something. They're going to have to keep on changing with the demands of a much more informed and healthy eating consumer.
