Has anyone else noticed that the kids menu's at most restaurants are not very healthy at all? My dd quit ordering kids meals a long time ago and generally eats a relatively healthy adult meal. I have a neighbor who is a single mother and she and her dd eat out ALL the time. Her dd is slightly overweight. My dd has gone with them a number of times and tells me that the little girl ALWAYS eats chicken strips and fries. Anyway to get to the point.... The mother was asking for ideas to help her dd lose weight so the kids won't tease her anymore. Her dd hates to play outside. I think a few home cooked meals and less chicken strips and fries would go a long way.
Now I do realize some restaurants offer "Healthier" options for kids meals...but I think eating out almost every night is a bit much. Even with the healthier options. She eats at every single kids eat free place she can find. She seems to think it is cheaper than buying groceries.
Any tips on how I can help her?
