We Found a Fast-Food, Healthy, Preservative-Free Kids’ Meal!

Tired of unhealthy fast food options for the kids filled with sugar and preservatives? Panera has a new take on the average kids’ meal. While kids’ meals at most fast food chains are limited to 3 or 4 options–usually one that chicken nuggets–Panera is offering kids’ portions (and pricing) on 40 of their adult entrees. You can order a half portion of any salad or sandwich on their regular menu. The meals still include the choice of a side (yogurt, apples, whole grain roll, baguette or chips) and a water, organic milk or fruit juice. And they make the promise of no artificial flavors, colors, sweeteners or preservatives.

Check out their Kids Vegetarian Autumn Squash Soup (above): butternut squash and pumpkin soup simmered in vegetable broth with honey, apple juice, cinnamon and a hint of curry, finished with sweet cream and topped with roasted and salted pumpkin seeds.
