Restaurant chains to offer more healthful options for kids

In more appealing fast-food news, 19 chains -- including Burger King, Denny's, IHOP, Chili's, Friendly's, Chevy's and El Pollo Loco -- have agreed to participate in the Kids Live Well initiative as worries increase about the role of fast food in childhood obesity. To meet the initiative's criteria, participating restaurants must promise to offer at least one children's meal that has fewer than 600 calories, no soft drinks and at least two items from the following food groups: fruits, vegetables, whole grains, lean proteins and low-fat dairy.
