Thumbs Up: Safari Nuggets
There’s no guilt choosing these Uno Chicago Grill oven-baked chicken nuggets for your child. One serving supplies a reasonable 250 calories and 12 grams of fat (only 2.5 grams are saturated). Compared to many other items on the kiddie menu, it’s lower in sodium too with 460 milligrams. Plus it dishes up 40% of the daily value for iron. Round out your child’s meal with a side of steamed broccoli, red grapes, or brown rice for extra fiber and nutrients.
Thumbs Down: Deep Dish Pepperoni Pizza
This deep dish pie serves up a staggering 900 calories, 62 grams of fat, and 1,470 milligrams of sodium. Your child can still go Italian. Order a 290-calorie bowl of whole grain pasta with tomato sauce (it counts as a veggie!). Your child will score 9 grams of fiber and at least 20% of their daily value for vitamins A and C.
