Health Tip:

Dashboard Dining

Almost 9 out of 10 American households bought food at a drive-through window last year. Take time to make it a healthy snack or meal.

The Web site Fast Food Facts lists lots of fast food nutrient values. Think in advance about how many calories you want to spend on your lunch. If you eat 2,000 calories in a day, you might consider allocating about 1,000 for breakfast, morning snack and lunch and 1,000 for supper. Find the calorie split you like best.

This nutrition tip is from Dr. Kathryn Kolasa, registered dietitian and professor of family medicine at the Brody School of Medicine.
