Children in close proximity to fast food restaurants more likely to be obese

Children who live near fast food restaurants are more likely to be obese.

A new study out of the U.K. looked at more than one million children and how close they lived to unhealthy food places, like pizza parlors and burger bars.

Researchers say older children who had more control over their food choices were the most affected.

On the other hand, children who lived near healthy food options tended to have healthier weights.
