Author(s): Dr. Swati Sachan
Fast food refers to food that can be served ready to eat. The terms fast food and junk food are often used interchangeably. Most of the junk foods are fast foods as they are prepared and served fast, but not all fast foods is junk food, especially when they are prepared with nutritious contents. Fast food culture is an emerging trend among the younger generation. The ready availability, taste, low cost, marketing strategies and peer pressure has made them popular with adolescents. Fast food restaurants are primed to maximize the speed, efficiency and conformity. The menu is kept limited and standardized essentially to minimize the waiting time so that the customers at quickly and leave. This perspective delineates the emerging fast food culture in India, its impact on children and strategies to counter it.
