Kid's Meals Fall Short of Nutritional Standards


MASSACHUSETTS - Fast food and other restaurants are offering healthier kids' meals.

According to a study led by researchers at Tufts University and published in 'Journal of Nutrition Education and Behavior, researchers say there is still room for improvement.

The study shows nearly three quarters of fast food kid combos meet the criteria for calories but less than a third contain the recommended amount of sodium and saturated fat.

Only a quarter of full service restaurant kids' meals meet nutritional standards.
