A survey published by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in early October shows that between 2013 and 2016, more than 36 percent of adults – or more than one in three – consume fast food on a given day. While several fast food chains have increased the number of healthier choices on their menus, they still have a reputation of serving meals and snacks both high in calories and lacking in fruits and vegetables. K-State Research and Extension nutrition specialist Sandy Procter offers tips for eating healthier in today’s fast food world.
