Kid's Menu Options That Are Worse Than a Whopper
Patting yourself on the back because you've kept your family away from the drive-thru window? Not so fast!
TakePart.com put together a list of menu options for little ones from popular restaurants that are "worse than a Whopper."
Parents beware - it turns out the kid's menu isn't always kid-friendly.....
Check out a few surprisingly bad choices below:
1. Old Spaghetti Factory's Kids Fettucine Alfredo.
With more than twice the amount of saturated fat as a Whopper (23 grams vs. 11 grams), this entree should be called fettucine alfred-no.
2. Chili's Pepper Pals Grilled Cheese Sandwich.
Apparently the Pepper Pals are also good buddies with high sodium levels. This sammie has 1,040 milligrams of sodium, 43 grams of fat, 13 grams of saturated fat.
3. Ruby Tuesday’s Kid Beef Minis
With 802 calories, 46 grams of fat, and 953 milligrams of sodium, you might as well just stack these mini-burgers, Whopper-style.
4. California Pizza Kitchen’s Kids Curly Mac ’n Cheese
Good gracious! This cheesy dish comes with 960 calories, 57 grams of fat (33 of them saturated) and 699 milligrams of sodium.
5. P.F. Chang’s Baby Buddha’s Feast Stir-Fried
Looks like veggies, yes? Veggies are good for you, right? Wrong. Even though this menu choice seems to be a nutritious meal with only 180 calories and 8 grams of fat, it has a WHOPPING 1610 milligrams of sodium.
