Roughly one-third of U.S. children and teens ate fast food on any given day in 2011 and 2012, a new report says.
The report released this month by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention furthers concerns about the country's rising childhood obesity rates. The report was based on data from the latest National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey.
The study showed kids and teens ages 2 through 19 got an average of 12 percent of their daily calories from fast food restaurants. (Video via KFC)
