Obese Teens and Girls More Likely to Read Fast Food Calorie Labels

The good news: When it comes to reading fast food calorie information, girls and obese teens are more likely to pay attention to them. The bad news: Boys and slimmer teens are more likely to ignore them. But, a new CDC report also found that overall teens were 42 percent less likely to pay attention to these labels than adults.
