There are exciting changes coming to the kids’ menus at some of our favorite spots.
The Washington Restaurant Association is rolling out new, healthier items with kid appeal as part of their initiative, Healthy Meals, Happy Kids. The selections are the result of collaborations between the talented students in the Lakes High School culinary program, the restaurant association, and advisers from the Multicare Health System.
The program kick off is tonight, Thursday, from 5 to 6:30 p.m. at each of the participating Lakewood-area restaurants: The Ram, Farrelli’s Wood Fire Pizza, Burs Restaurant and Carr’s Restaurant & Bar. Each restaurant will feature a special sampling table for all children visiting the restaurant, allowing each of them to try the new menu, which includes more nutritious versions of favorites like pizza and chicken nuggets. This is an informal, drop-in event, and you shouldn’t expect to get a full, free meal. It does sound like a fun chance to let your kids be taste testers! You can also enter to win a 25.00 gift card to the participating restaurants through a News Tribune Sweepstakes.
