If you think that smaller-portioned “kiddie” meals at fast food eateries, such as McDonald’s, Taco Bell and KFC are lower in calories, think again. According to a report released by the Center for Science in the Public Interest, children’s meals—like regular-sized meals—are high in calories.

Researchers surveyed 13 major restaurant chains and found that children’s meals exceeded the daily recommended 430 calories that 4 to 8 year-olds should consume per meal. The report showed that the meals were also high in trans fat and sodium, which increase the possibility of heart disease and raise cholesterol levels.

Also, African-American children are more likely to be obese than their counterparts, says the Office of Minority of Health. It is important that parents teach their children that healthy meals mean a healthier life.
