Chick-Fil-A's Newest Menu Addition {Healthy Kids Meals}

Chick-fil-A is offering a new Kid’s Meal, which is anticipated to be one of the most nutritious in the country, featuring Grilled Nuggets as an entrĂ©e. Compared to an “average” hamburger kid’s meal offered at fast food restaurants, the new Chick-fil-A Kid’s Meal (4-count grilled nuggets, fruit cup and low fat milk) contains almost 60 percent less calories and an estimated 85 percent less fat. The chain also is enhancing its side choices by adding Buddy Fruits Pure Blended Fruit To Go applesauce.

This is a huge step for Chick-fil-A to further expand healthy menu options for families. When we visit Chick-Fil-A for lunch or dinner we always get the same thing for the kids. We order a 4-count chicken nugget meal with french fries, milk and an extra side of fruit. The fries are shared by the whole family (you read that right... a kids meal fry split between our family of four) and the fruit and nuggets are shared between my daughter and son. Now with the addition of the grilled nuggets I'm even more inclined to stop by Chick-Fil-A when we need a meal on the go.

My son recently celebrated his 3rd birthday so for lunch last week I took him on request to Chick-Fil-A. And while I normally don't order chocolate milk I couldn't resist his birthday pleas. So he suckered me into getting him chocolate milk and french fries. But don't worry, his sister made sure to eat all of the fruit we got from our side order. Mommy enjoyed a delicious grilled chicken salad. Full of flavor and no guilt! Their grilled chicken sandwiches are super tasty too. Order it with a wheat bun to make it a tad bit healthier. Or skip the bun all together and go for a lettuce wrap.

We don't usually eat at fast food restaurants but when we do it's at one of two places. And the first place on our list is Chick-Fil-A. Tasty food, healthy choices and great service are what will help keep us coming back time and time again. I don't feel like a bad mommy for letting my kids eat here and I enjoy the options I have too. Have you tried their berry balsamic dressing? YUM! 

An added bonus for the kids is their toy-for-ice cream trade. If your son or daughter isn't into the toy they received (or you just don't want another toy around the house) they can trade it for a kids size ice dream cone. My kids love this and know exactly what to do at the end of their meal.

I love the #2 with no lettuce and provolone instead of american cheese.

The girls love to share a 6 piece kids nugget meal (with the under 3 toy) and the same sandwich I like!

You didn't think I was going to be so specific, did you?

Hahaha, Heather :) You guys are just like us. We have a very specific order when we go and it usually doesn't change much!

My kids love Chick-Fil-A - my 5 year old son is more of a vegetarian but loves the fries, so he and I usually swap my medium for his kids meal fries... but my youngest LOVES the new apple sauce squeeze option and we all love the new grilled nuggets!

Thanks for the giveaway!

We love Chick Fil A. My son calls it Chick Fil Lake. We usually get the same for the kids- 4 count nuggets, fruit cup, and chocolate milk. They split it and I share my fries. Yum! :)

We always order milk with all of our fast food orders. No sodas for us. I love this giveaway. Thanks!
