Fast Food Lesson

by www.elcivics.com

Fast food is food that is prepared and served quickly. Customers order fast food at counters and drive-thrus in small restaurants. Fast food is served in disposable containers. It is cheap and customers don't have to leave a tip because fast food restaurants are self-serve. Fast food is high in fat and calories. Fast food meals should not be eaten too often because it is not as healthy as home cooked meals. (4 pages)
