Not As Healthy As You Might Think for Those 12-21 Years Old

Research appearing in the Journal of Adolescent Health found that study subjects between the ages of 12 and 21 who bought meals at Subway ate nearly as many as those who bought at McDonald’s. Participants bought meals containing an average of 1,038 calories at McDonald’s and an average of 955 calories at Subway.  Sodium intake averaged 2,149 milligrams at Subway; 1,829 milligrams at McDonald’s.  Adolescent lunches should not exceed 850 calories, according to the Institute of Medicine.
