If we didn’t have fast food in the present days, we would be vegetarians or we would all have extreme thin bodies because we didn’t eat food that contains a big amount of carbohydrates. Fast food was made for a purpose and it’s for people who work in offices and are in a hurry to their job during their break. So they grab a meal and make their way quick back to their seats. There have been debates and scientific researches over whether fast food is the main cause of obesity and that it should be blamed for its cause.

Students lunches are being downgraded every year. The United States has one of the cheapest school lunch programs around the world. An Article called The Real Problem with School Lunches talks about how “we criticize schools ' reliance on highly processed, heat- 'n '-eat food, but cooking from scratch requires adequate cold storage and food preparation facilities, as well as trained workers” (Siegel). This shows that we complain so much on how the food is prepared but the government as well as every individual does not want to pay the price. Also “school meals in other countries fascinate us because they reflect a society 's true food culture, as well as its regard for its children” (Siegel).
The more popular it becomes to be healthier the more the prices of fruits and vegetables rise. No matter where you are in the world the healthy food will usually cost a lot more than the unhealthy food. There is not much of a difference if you are at the grocery store or at a fast food restaurant.

Fast food restaurants being everywhere makes it a number one choice for most people to get an easy and cheap meal, especially for those who live or work near the restaurants, without really caring about what kind of junk they are eating. Fast food companies also have unethical marketing techniques that target children, using promotional cartoon or movie-related toys to make children even more attracted to buy their products. Moreover, fast food restaurants selectively give nutritional information to their innocent customers, hiding the shocking facts that will make the customers recoil from buying their foods and refuse to come back ever again. Despite all of these, suing fast food companies doesn't feel quite right.
For those of us who are lucky enough to eat a complete set of meal a day (breakfast, lunch, dinner), many of us are too picky to eat a healthy selection of food. Other times, we waste a lot of food that can feed a hungry child or two just because we did not like the taste, or how it was prepared. So, how then can we avoid wasting food because we didn’t prepare it the right way, and save those extra bucks we spend every time we dine out because we are too tired or too lazy to cook our dinner? We need to be smarter about our food choices. Starting a healthy lifestyle begins with choosing healthy foods for our meals.
Companies like McDonald’s, Wendy’s, Taco Bell, and more are effortless ways for Americans to get their food.

Wealthier communities tend to buy foods that are expensive and those that are healthier for them to eat. Eating nutritious foods makes them reduce the risk of getting a chronic disease. Wealthier communities are more surrounded by organic, healthier whole foods. Families in low-income households tend to buy foods from fast food restaurants and more processed foods because the neighborhoods they live in tend to not have fresh produce available to them due to the poor community that they live in.
