8 doctors agree

In brief: Too Many

Data on people's exact diet and eating habits can be difficult to collect.
I would suspect that the majority of teenagers are eating a sad diet(standard american diet) which is high in processed foods, high in animal fats & hydrogenated fats, and low in fiber, low in fruits & vegetables & low in complex carbs.

Unfortunately the percentage is still rising and the answer lies primarily in the home and with good parenting. School lunch reforms are not a reliable answer.
