Thumbs Up: Garlic-Grilled Shrimp
When it comes to healthy kids meals, Red Lobster’s Kids’ Cove Menu has too many to list. Top honors go to the Garlic-Grilled Shrimp with just 60 calories and 1 gram of fat (0 saturated). Other top picks include the Broiled Fish and the Popcorn Shrimp for 140 calories each. Did we mention that we love that all of these come with 1% milk plus your child’s choice of broccoli or orange slices?
Thumbs Down: Frozen Strawberry Lemonade
With the exception of the Chicken Fingers, just about every kids’ pick is a winner. But there’s still trouble lurking on the kids’ drink menu. Red Lobster’s Kids’ Cove Smoothies, Slushies, and Lemonades all pour upwards of 250 calories. The biggest calorie bomb is the innocent-sounding Frozen Strawberry Lemonade, clocking in at 380 calories. Steer your child toward the gratuitous glass of milk instead.
