In addition to lesser time, people would take the easier path – fast foods. Fast foods are much cheaper and more convenient compared to restaurants. Occasional visits may not trigger obesity but the number of trips may increase upon continuous time and money problems. Furthermore, the negative impact of fast food consumption is a long term basis.
It could be really convenient to feed your kids with fast food but always remember that childhood obesity may be the platform to higher risk of health problems such as high cholesterol, diabetes and high blood pressure. Being oversized may also lead them to receiving taunts and teases so it is possible they might establish some emotional ramifications.
Certainly, nobody is free from recession. The growth in obesity rate is no longer an uncommon seen in times of recession. But you can definitely prevent such problems by leading a healthy lifestyle. Fast foods may save you some pennies compared to restaurants but take a broader view, fruits and vegetables are way cheaper than fast foods.
