Fast food restaurants may be be quick and easy, but research shows they don’t offer many healthy kids meal items. In Austin, like many cities around the United States, fast food restaurants can be found almost everywhere, especially in areas where Latino children live.

Austin City Council is considering limiting where new fast food restaurants can set up shop. The resolution, if passed, would restrict fast-food food restaurants from locating near areas that children frequent. That includes schools, municipal parks, child care centers and libraries.

Thursday November 21, 2013, Austin City Council voted to reject the fast food ban.
