Adaptation Part A: Further Research

After my tutorial with Alan I needed to decide on what information it is that I wanted to get across with this infographic. It has been slightly difficult to pick, but I think that the piece of information people want to know most about when it comes to fast food is the calorie intake.

I researched a little bit into this to get an idea of the numbers. I also came across McDonald's nutrition facts to help my research further.
