Fast Food Falling out of Favor?

    I've read numerous articles lately about the major players,such as McDonalds, Wendys and Burger King,losing sales and major food contracts with some hospitals and sporting venues. The new generation. of all people, are embracing a healthier lifestyle. Organic food, reducing sugary drinks,and more salads are in demand.
    As a baby boomer, I am surprised and proud of the younger generation to try to eat healthier but still see so much more room for improvement.
    Fast food is cheap and easily available; maybe one day healthier food will become the norm?Anyone want to see fast food completely done away with? hmm

      Not I - I had a hamburger just the other day while travelling away from home.  First one this year, but I DID get one (and enjoyed it, too!).  And have twice bought chicken nuggets to tide me over until lunch.

          Nope.  I like (some) of it, doubly so if you consider pizza to be fast food, but don't get much of it.  Far to high in fats and calories.

      Quite encouraging news. Younger generation becoming more aware of healthier food stuff. They are realising the dangers and keeping themselves updated towards healthier food habits.
      But, I am afraid it may not be so easy to get rid of the stuff. Fast foods are so much alluring and appealing to your senses, that it is not easy to stop them. Moreover, they are handy and you think of your time and efforts involved in adopting healthy food style. A strong determination is required to be strict and practise healthy habits.

        Wouldn't it be fun to imagine a whole foods drive through window?
        order the food ahead of time and pick it up some healthy food at a cheap price?
        It's just a dream I guess. wink

          Healthy food at cheap prices is really a dream which is very difficult to accomplish. So better thing is to prepare fresh and healthy at home.

    Fast food should be "done away with" as a title.  Take a look at the line in front of you and the people waiting that ordered before.  As far as calling it food, it probably is more aptly titled than a ms. obama lunch.
