We all asked ourselves this question, is junk food really cheaper than healthy food while were sitting in the drive thru at a fast food restaurant. According to Shocking Fast Food Statistics You Should Know by Deanna Kidd, about 60 of Americans are overweight or obese mostly because fast food places are so cheap when it comes to fattening food, but fast food companies keep raising the prices on healthy food (Deanna). Obesity is on the rise in the United States because the prices of healthy foods are so much more expensive, and the corporations continue to sell items the same way. The prices continue to rise and the companies do not seem to care. Affordable food and timing are the reasons people eat at fast food restaurants .Fast food as we call it like McDonalds seems like it would be cheap. Certain items like a McDonalds Angus Burger, which has 790 calories in it cost 3.99 plus tax, but if you look closely at the salads they are almost five dollars. Americans are obese or on the edge because the fast food places we go to are charging more for the healthy things like salads our body needs. While researching McDonalds, I was shocked to see that even the salads were not healthy once you add the chicken, and dressing along with all the other delicious condiments you put on them. I find it ironic that the government is continuing to let fast food chains keep raising prices on healthy food. Corporations should be lowering prices to get people to want to eat healthy, and to stop eating products that can potentially harm them. Is eating healthier the better option? Most people agree that eating healthier will make you happier and healthier, but is it worth spending a lot of money to get to the diet you really want. In America has increased severely, it is often overlooked. Nearly one third of United States children from ages 4 to 9 eat fast food. Children can gain about six extra pounds per year from eating fast food. Billions of dollars are spent each year, just on advertising food commercials on TV. Most fast food commercials are directed towards children. People who eat fast food consume more carbohydrates, fats, sugars and fewer fruits and non-starchy vegetables than people who do not eat fast. Since the 1990's children have had an increase in calorie consumption because of the fast food restaurants. Some fast food places offer play area's for children, which provoke kids to want to eat there. Many people all over the world blame McDonald’s corporation. Many law suits were being attempted but were never successful. McDonald's is one of the most popular fast food chains around. Many people eat at fast food restaurants because it is cheap and convenient. Fast food may taste good but it is certainly bad for you. There are many problems that can come along with eating the food. You can end up with many health issues such as hypertension, dyslipidemia, diabetes, coronary heart disease, strokes, and, or gallbladder. Obesity is a life-threatening disease that can cause a lot of misery. Many children who get obese forget what the outside world is like. They begin to just stay in and eat, watch TV, play video games, and just become outright lazy. Parents really need to focus on teaching their children proper portions to eat. Children tend to have a habit of super sizing their meals and don’t realize the enormous amount of calories they are consuming. Most fast-food chains are not concerned with healthy items; they are just concerned with making a profit. Fast food saves time. Today many people have a busy schedule and do not find time to cook. Taking away some readymade food is convenient for them. The media has made it known that fast foods are bad but after a long day at work, the fastest way to satisfy your hunger is fast food. You do not need to stand in front of a cooker for several hours preparing and cooking a meal. Preparing a meal at home is a long process, starts with a visit to the grocery or supermarket to get ingredients, then more time and energy is consumed in the peeling and washing of vegetables, the cooking, and washing of utensils. One just pops in a fast food joint, orders, and within no time is served to you. Fast food is the best option for a busy person. It is the easiest way to get sweet and large quantity food without literally sweating for it. Cost saving Buying fast food is more economical compared to preparing a meal at home. For example, if one stays alone it becomes cheaper for them to buy ready food like burgers and fries that are relatively cheap than cook. Cooking ingredients, time consumed and resources like gas, cooking oil, and utensils all added together make cooking when living alone a very expensive exercise. It saves cost in the sense that buying food in hotels is not affordable for average earning persons. One then gets enough food at a lower price. Healthy options with the many health concerns associated with fast foods it’s almost hard to imagine the good side of it. There are options in the menu that are healthy for example, salads, wheat bread, and lean meat.
