Quick Serve Kids: Helping parents navigate the world of fast food
By this point, many of us have seen Super Size Me and read Fast Food Nation. I can safely assume that none of us prefers to serve our kids fast food. And yet we do it anyway. Sometimes the drive-thru is the easiest way to feed hungry children on the way home from soccer practice. Or it's the path of least resistance at the end of a long day. Or it's simply a treat every now and then. (I still have an annual craving for a McDonald's vanilla shake. Those childhood associations are disturbingly strong.)
Whatever role fast food plays in your family's mealtime routine, you'll find something of interest at Quick Serve Kids. The author, Lea Davis, is a mother and former editor of QSR Magazine (a trade journal for the quick-serve restaurant industry), so she knows whereof she speaks. She's also a Parent Hacks reader -- see that comely link badge in her sidebar?
