For the last two to three decades, a growing number of people have made fast food a regular part of their diets. As they spend more time away from home, they lack the time to cook meals for their families. Fast food has greatly evolved since its inception back in the 1950s.
Fast food, for all of its fat and cholesterol content, still offers a respectable amount of nutritional components that people need on a daily basis. It is not uncommon to find fast food that that offers: Iron, Protein, Carbohydrates, Calcium and B-complex vitamins.
Some of the more popular brands found in today's fast food world include: McDonald's, Burger King, Chick-Fil-A, Hardee's and Dairy Queen.
Eaten in moderate or minimal amounts, fast food could provide people with nutrients they need for good health.
