Healthy food options added to the menu at Shedd Aquarium
Wednesday, April 24, 2013
A day out with the kids at local museums often means a lunch of unhealthy fast foods. But Shedd Aquarium has just unveiled a new menu for kids 12 and under that focuses on healthy options.
Shedd, which partnered with Chicago-based Healthy Fare for Kids, is now offering an updated kids' menu filled with nutritious options. Choices include all-natural grilled chicken sliders served with celery sticks and organic peanut butter, as well as a low-fat baked cheese quesadilla with steamed green beans. There's also all-natural peanut butter and banana grilled on a low-fat tortilla served with fresh fruit, as well as lean ground beef turkey sloppy Joes with baked sweet potato fries.
