5 worst fast food 'healthy' kids' meals

NBC Miami- Some of our favorite foods have made the list of the five worst “healthy” fast food kids’ meals. The Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine released the list Thursday as the summer season begins.

Javier Suarez is a father of two and said he sometimes takes his kids to eat fast food. “The thing is that I know they are bad, but when you are in a hurry at the end of the day, you have to feed him,” he said.

The committee said that foods listed as healthy really are not. Chick-Fil-A’s grilled nuggets kids’ meal, which topped the list, contains the same amount of cholesterol as a Big Mac, according to the list.

“It’s processed, they add salt to cook and preserve the food and it’s also the sides and the drink,” said Kasie Fondren-Jorquera, a registered clinical dietitian at Memorial Hospital Miramar.
