Report: Oklahoma's Young Adults #1 For Fast Food Spending

When it comes to making healthy food choices, Oklahoma's young people are getting a failing grade.

According to a new survey by Level Money, Millennials in our state are number one nationwide when it comes to spending on fast food.

Young adults in Oklahoma spent almost $1,200 a year when it comes to fast food.

Experts say, it all boils down to education.

Kaitlin Snyder with the Tulsa Health Department says, "It's easy for us to sit here and say that if you eat a certain number of fruits and vegetables a day you're going to live better. But if you don't know where to get those, you don't know how to prepare them, you're not going to be successful."

Millennials in Vermont spent the least amount on fast food, about $430 a year.
