Happy Meal Calorie Count

Quiz: Fast Food Kiddie Nation

Parents working overtime often find themselves in the drive–through lane of fast food restaurants. After a long day in front of the computer and bath time on the horizon, chicken nuggets, french fries, and soda are tempting. America's waistband is expanding, and the wee ones aren't exempt.

Take my fast food test to see if you know your facts. You may be less than happy with the meal's results.
