Trends toward Healthy Dining

The National Restaurant Association has identified kids nutrition as one of the hottest trends on the horizon. According to Joy Dubost, the association’s director of nutrition and healthy living, nearly one million restaurants are in tune with consumer’s increasing interest in healthful eating. Kid’s menus, once the predictable fried-chicken fingers and corn dogs, are growing healthier as parents are demanding better options. The ideas range from as unusual as a nut-and-strawberry sandwich to as ordinary as traditional salads. In addition, when standard kids fare is offered, it will soon be made from more healthful ingredients. For example, there are thoughts about using organic cheese for grilled cheese sandwiches and grass-fed beef for burgers.
