Q: I don’t have time to sort through and understand restaurant nutrition information.  What are the best choices for my kids at restaurants?

A: You are certainly not alone as a parent short on time!  We’ll make this short and sweet.  In general, the best choices for kids include lots of fruits and veggies, lean proteins like chicken and fish, whole grains like brown rice and whole wheat pasta and low fat dairy.  Aim for a plate that looks like MyPlate.  The good news is that many restaurants are now making the healthier choices the easier choices for parents and kids alike thanks to feedback from families like yours.
