Healthy food options added to the menu at Shedd Aquarium

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.

The healthy choices, which are offered at Shedd’s Bubble Net restaurant and Soundings Cafe, are identified with the Healthy Fare for Kids logo.
