Do you REALLY want to know?

Does the nutritional value of your lunch make the grade?

Check out this website, which boasts an extensive list of fast food restaurants, menu items, and the associated nutritional information for each. For those of you that can't quite digest all the information about protein, carbs, sodium, fiber, etc., this site makes it easy by assigning a letter grade to each item, just like in school.

Average your "food grade" for a day. If you're failing, you have bigger things to worry about than having to retake a meal. This would be a great activity to do with your children, and an avenue for teaching them healthy eating with a grading system they can relate to.

Garbage in, garbage out!
