Children who regularly eat takeaway meals may be increasing their risk of developing heart disease later in life, a new study has found.

These children are also more likely to be consuming too many calories and fewer vitamins and minerals than children who consume food that is cooked in the home.

Previous research has found a link between takeaway meals and a higher risk of weight problems, type 2 diabetes and heart disease in adults. Researchers in the UK set out to see if children who consume these meals face the same problems.
