      DALLAS � Sarah Blumenschein sees a pattern in the overweight children who
      come to her clinic. They snack more often and they eat out more often �
      especially at fast-food restaurants.

      "The kids don't realize the high calorie and fat levels in fast food," said
      Blumenschein, a pediatric cardiologist at the University of Texas
      Southwestern Medical Center at Dallas. "The marketing of fast food has been
      very clever."

      "Trans fat is a no-brainer. They should have done this a long time ago.
      We've known about trans fat for 30 years," said Marion Nestle, a professor
      of nutrition at New York University and author of "Food Politics," a
      critical look at the food industry's influence.
