Most chain restaurants continue to offer kids the same narrow range of salty, sugary, fatty foods like chicken fingers, burgers, fries, and soda. A new study from the Center for Science in the Public Interest shows that only 3% of kids' meals at the nation's top chains are healthy, and restaurants have made little improvement to their kids' menu items since CSPI's last study in 2008.
Restaurants can do better. Please urge them to add more fruits and veggies and cut the salt, sugar and fat from their kids' meals: bit.ly/kids-meals
