The Wrap Up on Fast Food

This article is designed to increase awareness of problems with quick food. Most quick foods do not promote a healthier, more nutritious diet for developed nations. They don’t measure up to the National Dietary Guidelines because they tend to be:

- overloaded with stout, salt, sugar and kilojoules
- low in fibre
- missing vital nutrients

Quick foods are more expensive than meals prepared at home. Regular consumption of quick food reduces the buying power of people with limited incomes such as the unemployed.

Nevertheless, quick foods are a fact of life; we aren’t suggesting that you shouldn’t eat any quick food, but that you consider what’s in quick food, how much it costs and what alternatives are available.

To make the best choice when buying quick food, it may be useful to keep the following information in mind:

- Wholemeal sandwiches and rolls with fresh fillings, combined with fresh fruit or juice are an brilliant and cheap quick food.

- Vegetarian or seafood pizzas offer a less salty meal than pizzas with meat toppings. Sharing a pizza will save on cash and kilojoules.

- Hamburgers vary from one place to another, but for lowest kilojoules, a small hamburger is best.

- All friend fish is high in stout unless the batter is removed.

- Choose ethnic dishes with care as some are very high in salt and stout.

- Question the person behind the counter not to add extra salt.

- Fruit juice or milk are better choices than softdrinks.

If you eat a lot of quick food, consider the above factors in choosing the best quality available to you.
