New Study by Robert Murray Suggests Restaurants Cut Calories in Kid Meals

According to a new study co-authored by FIC member Dr. Robert Murray, popular restaurants have cut calories in children's meals and are offering some healthier side dishes, such as fruits and vegetables.

But, while these restaurants appear to be making some progress in providing lower-calorie menu options, the meals are still packed with too much salt and fat.
