Choose Carefully
By Kathleen W. Redman
  

1     In Dave's hometown, there are a lot of restaurants. Many of them are fast food restaurants. Dave likes to eat at fast food restaurants. He loves the food. He likes cheeseburgers, fries, tacos, onion rings, sodas, and shakes. The food doesn't cost very much. Dave can get fast food in a hurry.
 
2     There's a lot of unhealthy food at fast food restaurants. Dave knows all about it. He's heard about it at school. His mom and dad tell him his fast food meals will make him fat and tired. Dave knows that most fast food is not good for him. It may surprise Dave, but some fast food is actually healthy.
 
3     Dave will have to order different foods. He really likes burgers. His favorite fast food is a double bacon cheeseburger. It's loaded with calories and fat. His favorite fries have a lot of fat and too much salt. His soda has a lot of empty calories. Those fatty and salty foods aren't the only choices on the menu, though! There's other food Dave could order.
