Signs of Progress: Changes Coming to Panera Kids Meals

This morning Panera announced it will adhere to five tenets of what they are calling a ”Kids Meal Promise” as it hopes to spark a dialogue throughout the industry about what makes up kids meals.


For Voices for Healthy Kids, and our advocates, a highlight is that picking a kids meal doesn’t drive towards a  sugary drink. No drink is automatically included with a meal, and water will be offered as the first choice, and then the option of adding milk or 100 percent juice.

Small changes can sure add up to big ones.  Take a minute to enjoy the good news and then let’s get on with the work.
