Going to Chick-fil-A might be easier for health-conscious parents. The fast food chain just introduced its new kids' meal, which includes -- wait for it -- grilled chicken nuggets.
That's right, they're not fried. According to a company news release, a four-piece serving of the nuggets comes in at 80 calories and 1 gram of fat, and the six-piece has 110 calories and 1.5 grams of fat.
They're serving that chicken with a fruit cup, but diners have the option of substituting applesauce, which has 60 calories and no fat. Add some 1% milk to that, and you have a meal (with six nuggets and applesauce) of 260 calories, 4 grams of fat (2 grams of saturated fat), 25 grams of sugar, 32 grams of protein and 26 grams of carbohydrates.
Children's beverage options will be limited to 1% milk, 100% apple juice, lemonade and water.
An eight-piece serving of the regular fried nuggets has 260 calories and 12 grams of fat (2.5 grams of saturated fat).
