Children end up consuming more calories when they eat at fast food outlets and restaurants. Parents are partly to blame , especially if they do not go the extra mile to provide home cooked nutritious meals to their kids and instead indulge their kids at fast food outlets  and restaurants.  

Children who eat out consume more saturated food and soda compared to kids who eat at home.

Research also found that on an average, children consumed an additional 126 calories and teens 309 extra calories when they ate at fast food restaurants.
