Last fall, Little Harry's Restaurant in Rutland joined with the American Heart Association to offer a night of healthy kids' meals to the local community free of charge. Its Hawaiian chicken kebabs with brown rice and baby carrots and lemon pepper pork with homemade applesauce were a big hit.

Now the restaurant has joined 30 other restaurants in supporting the American Heart Association's effort to ensure the kids' meals at all restaurants in Vermont meet nutrition standards, including having healthy beverages offered first to kids.

We think Little Harry's is great and think you'll love them too once you try their great kids' meals recipes below.
