A typical teenager visits fast food restaurants more than twice (2.13 times) per week and spends an average of $5.72 per visit. In total, teens shell out $13 billion annually for fast food. Most of that money goes for hamburgers, followed by pizza, Tex-Mex and chicken.

Lunch is the meal most likely to be eaten away from home, with most teens (58%) buying something at school and about 28% bringing something from home. After school, a typical teenager spends $1.25 on snacks.
