A new study out of Yale University shows the average pre-schooler is seeing 21 percent more fast food ads than in 2003.

It found that out of more than 3,000 kids' meal combinations from 12 top restaurant chains only 12 met the nutritional guidelines for preschoolers.

The National Restaurant Association, which represents the industry, says it hasn't reviewed the data yet. But, it says, the restaurant industry has been committed to providing a growing array of nutritious offerings for children.
