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)
