Petition to force fast food companies to have unsalted fries with all children’s meals
Change the standard practices and ensure they encourage healthy eating in young people by ensuring that all meals that are served with fries are unsalted.
Why is this important?
This is extremely important as adding salt to fries increases the child’s intake and promotes unhealthy eating which can lead to child obesity and other health related issues. It seems ludicrous that as a parent I have to request that my child’s fries are unsalted which usually results in a longer waiting time. These fast food establishments such as McDonald’s and other high street brands which offer children’s meals need to readdress this, the fries should be sold unsalted as a standard, some parents may not realise that you can request unsalted fries, which is backwards as it shouldn’t even be an options on a child’s meal.
It’s about time that this changes.
Let’s make a stand and push for companies to do everything in their power to be as healthy a success possibly for ourselves and our children. We all enjoy these places as a treat but we should also be confident in these establishments to be doing everything they can to ensure our meals are fresh and as healthy as possible.
