With childhood obesity and illness on the rise it is imperative that our children have healthier options when ordering meals at restaurants across New York State. Today’s kids meals feature chicken nuggets or tenders, french fries, pizza, hamburgers, and an occasional fruit or sweet for dessert. The high level of trans fats, sodium and sugars in these processed foods are dangerous to the health of our growing children. We must offer more plant based, and wholesome options for our children in the form of vegetables, beans, and whole grains. Either as a main dish option or a side. Our children need foods that will strengthen their immune systems during times of growth and development. This will prevent future illness and aid in building stronger immune systems. Parents should have more options when dining out with their children and  children should not be coerced into eating kids meals with empty calories. A landmark bill has been passed to offer plant based meals in all hospitals in New York. This should be extended to all restaurants that serve kids meals. Patients should receive the upmost dietary care in a hospital setting and likewise so should our young children when dining out in any restaurant.
