Kids LiveWell: Find Healthy Restaurant Menu Options for Kids
Finding healthful menu options for kids while dining out is now easier than ever.
The National Restaurant Association’s Kids LiveWell program is celebrating its 4th birthday this month. The program has grown from 19 restaurant brands representing 15,000 locations to more than 155 brands and 42,000 locations with dietitian-approved menu options.
A free Kids LiveWell app for iPhone and Android helps find participating restaurants while on-the-go and shows Kids LiveWell-approved menu options from participating restaurants, giving parents and kids the opportunity to choose what they’d like to eat from a list of nutritious options. Restaurants that participate commit to offering healthful meals with a focus on fruit and vegetables, lean protein, whole grains and low-fat dairy. They also limit unhealthy fats, sugars and sodium.
The app is available for download here. The National Restaurant Association collaborated with Healthy Dining to create the Kids LiveWell program. You can also find participating restaurants and their menu options on Healthy Dining’s website, here.
You can also join a virtual twitter birthday party to celebrate the program Tuesday, July 28 from 1-3 pm ET. They will host from the @KidsLiveWell twitter handle with the hashtag #4yrsOfKidsLiveWell.
