Arby's Intros Healthier Kids' Meals

  • September 28, 2011
Arby's is the latest QSR to introduce a "better-for-you" kids' meal.

The chain's new kids' meal, to launch Oct. 3, includes Chiquita apple slices with a strawberry yogurt dip as the default side item instead of fries (parents must request Curly Fries or a fountain drink, if so desired, for their children).

The Jr. Turkey and Cheese Sandwich and the kids' Kraft Macaroni & Cheese entree are being served with the apple/yogurt dip side and a choice of low-fat white milk, Capri Sun 100% fruit juice or bottled water.

The revised kids' meals have 40% fewer calories, 70% less total fat and 50% less sodium, on average, than Arby's' previous kids' meals.

In addition, The Arby's Foundation has partnered with Share Our Strength's No Kid Hungry campaign. The Foundation will support the cause with donations, including an upcoming restaurant fundraising program and national and local awareness support through engagement of customers, employees and partners. The Foundation's goal is to contribute a minimum of $1 million to the No Kid Hungry Campaign in 2011, according to Arby's.
