>>> the people at the center for science and the public interest are telling us what most parents already know full well. most kids' meals at most chain restaurants have too many calories, too much salt, too much fat, not enough healthy ingredients, though they have gotten better. this is the same group that ruined buttered popcorn and chinese food for a lot of us. maybe they haven't had a cranky 6-year-old in the back seat lately. there is no disputing some of the nutrition stats or the room for improvement .
