84% Of Parents Fed Their Kids Fast Food In The Past Week

Yale University’s Rudd Center for Food Policy & Obesity says that 84% of parents surveyed for their epic new study of fast food nutrition and marketing said they’d fed their kids fast food at least once in the past week. 66% of parents surveyed took their kids specifically to McDonald’s.

Why are you doing it? Well, it might be because your kid is asking you to go there…every single day.

From the study:

Forty percent of parents reported that their child asks to go to McDonald’s at least once a week; 15% of preschoolers ask to go every day.

I don’t have kids, but that last part kinda freaks me out for some reason.
