Flame-broiled chicken tenders and apples as substitutes for French fries top the menu in Burger King's latest efforts to get American kids out of the fat lane. If they were really willing to go that extra mile and wanted to stand out from other fast food chains, they would get rid of those hard chairs and put treadmills in their place!

Implications - With obesity on the rise, it is important that fast food chains are joining in to fight the fat. Burger King has set new nutritional guidelines that have to be followed when serving children who are 12 and under. The kid's meals have to contain no more than 560 calories with less than 30 percent of those calories coming from fat.
