Kid's LiveWell - Revamping Kid's Menus


If my son had his way, we would eat out every night. I don't think I'm a lousy cook, but he likes coloring on the place mats and eating things I don't normally cook. More often than not the kid's meals consist of nothing but greasy and fried foods. If we are lucky there may be a side of carrots or apples. Now that he is able to read menus and order for himself I want him to have healthy options to choose from. As I continue to make lifestyle changes, I want to change the culture in my household when it comes to food. This is why I was excited to be contacted by the National Restaurant Association and Healthy Dining to learn more about their Kid's LiveWell program.

Some of Chick-fil-A's options. They offer grilled chicken nuggets!
Since launching last July, Kids LiveWell includes 96 restaurant brands across the country. The newest additions are Chick-fil-A, Applebee's and Kraft Foods. Each participating restaurant has agreed to provide menu items that meet certain nutritional criteria. There's also a  free mobile app that allows you to search for participating restaurants in your area. Another reason why I need to upgrade my phone. I had to view the mobile app on friend's iPhone and it's very snazzy!

newest additions to the Kids LiveWell program, Chick-fil-A, Applebee's and Kraft Foods.
With 96 restaurants (national chains AND locally owned) participating in this program, in every state, there are affordable and healthy options available for you and your family. I'm happy that the National Restaurant Association is listening to consumers and taking our health and well being into consideration. Can't wait to see how many more jump on board!
