Children who eat fast food may be hard pressed to find a healthy meal, according to a new report from the Yale Rudd Center for Food Policy and Obesity.



The new report, Fast Food FACTS 2013, looks closely at the nutrition of kid's meals and how they are advertised to children. It tracks changes in these areas that occurred since the group's last report was issued in 2010.

"There were some improvements, but they have been small, and the pace too slow," Rudd Center director Marlene Schwartz, said in a statement. "Without more significant changes, we are unlikely to see meaningful reductions in unhealthy fast food consumption by young people."
