Thumbs Up: Turkey Sandwich
A small turkey sandwich off the Così Kids menu has just 151 calories, 1 gram of fat, and 262 milligrams of sodium. Skip the chips, soda, and juice and choose baby carrots or a fruit cup and milk. Also, ask for the sandwich to be made on whole wheat bread for added fiber and whole grains.
Thumbs Down: Mississippi Mud Pie instead
With many of the sandwiches within reasonable calorie ranges (like tuna, turkey, and even grilled cheese), ordering this truly troublesome dessert will add a staggering 777 calories, 50 grams of fat, and 1,065 milligrams of sodium to the meal—yikes! Considering each kids’ meal already comes with a chocolate chip cookie, skip the kids’ dessert menu entirely.
