Nothing beats a healthy, home-cooked meal, but times are tough. People are busy. And sometimes, its easier to go through the drive-thru than it is to be driven crazy over a recipe for chicken parm.
We get it, but when it comes to the kinds of foods that are out there for quick and cheap, people have a lot of options and when it comes to feeding kids, parents should really consider what they are feeding them.
For example, Subway happens to have some the healthiest options for kids. Their unhealthiest Meal is only 395 calories: Roast beef sandwich, apples and low-fat milk. Not too bad right? Similarly and perhaps surprisingly, Burger King isn't that bad either. If your kid orders the Chicken tenders meal with apple fries and low-fat milk, that's only 350 calories. Course, if you substitute those tenders for a hamburger, it goes up to 430. Still, not that bad.
Care to know the WORST kid's meal around? We found one that's 883 calories! That's like, almost a kids daily calorie intake!
