Do you want fruit with that?

As a working mom, I know dinner can easily slip to the bottom of the ‘to-do’ list, especially on those long days. I’m mildly ashamed to admit, sometimes we get dinner in a paper bag handed off from a drive-thru window.

With all the attention on preventing obesity, we find ourselves guilt-ridden when we don’t have time to make something from scratch, or when we opt for the occasional fast food meal.

So a group of restaurants has gotten together and introduced something called “Kids LiveWell” — all in an effort to minimize our guilt and be sure our kids are eating healthy when we do eat out. The program means you’ll now have the choice of a children’s meal of 600 calories or less.

Here are the details on the program, including a list of participating restaurants: http://www.reuters.com/article/2011/07/13/us-restaurants-children-idUSTRE76C5MQ20110713

What do you think? Would this program influence where you go to get some grub?
