Healthy Kids Meals, Good for Kids and Good for Business!

 

Parents rely on restaurants often these days for meals given hectic work and family schedules. But even though dining out is fun, fast, and easy, it’s not always healthy for kids. We’d like to change that.

We’re working in Vermont to ensure that all restaurant kids’ meals meet nutrition standards to serve our kids better. When we surveyed Vermont restaurants last year, they said they could make changes to improve the nutrition of their kids' meals relatively easily. But they wanted to make sure kids would eat the meals, and parents would buy them. Now we have some good news.

New research from Tufts shows that when a restaurant group they studied eliminated fries and sodas from kids’ meals, orders of healthy entrees and sides went up! Check it out for yourself! http://www.childobesity180.org/healthy-meals 

Kids were able to eat healthy and restaurants still made a profit. Let your local restaurants know that healthy meals for kids are good for kids and business.

We’ll be serving healthy kids meals to the public for free this September at events at seven restaurants across Vermont. Let us know if you’re interested and we’ll hook you up with a location near you!
