It’s not every day a kid gets their food creation on a menu at a well-known restaurant – until now. The new Kids Fit Menu made for kids by kids for Cheddar’s Scratch Kitchen is now available at select DFW locations. This post is sponsored by Cheddar’s Scratch Kitchen. All opinions are my own.
New Kids Fit Menu Made for Kids By Kids
Cheddar’s Scratch Kitchen partnered with Medical City Children’s Hospital to challenge four, two-person student teams to create healthy, handcrafted dishes through the Kids Fit Menu program. Five of us DFW bloggers were invited to experience this challenge (read about it here) and write about it.
Each student team was required to incorporate a full serving of fruits or vegetables into their recipe, as well as follow strict guidelines regarding the amount of sugar, sodium and trans fat that could be utilized in their dish. The four winners of the student-led competition received scholarships from Cheddar’s Scratch Kitchen and their dishes are available on kid’s menus for a limited time.
Congratulations to Abelardo Villegas and Hope Cachay from Jack E. Singley Academy and Kaitlyn Flenker and Vivian Martin from Buinger Career and Technology Education Academy!
The winning dishes are Pizza Dippers and a Honey Lime Chicken Wrap. Starting August 1, these winning dishes are available at the following 9 Dallas/Fort Worth locations:
- Greenville Ave.
- The Colony
- Little Road
I hope you get a chance to visit a location soon to check out both Kid Fit Menu items. Check out Cheddar’s Scratch Kitchen for the nearest location near you.
Brody’s Kids Fit Menu Choice:
It was a hard choice because Brody loves pizza. He chose the Honey Lime Chicken Wrap simply because the description on the menu sounded so yummy to him!! With crisp vegetables and fruit inside, it was our favorite too!
We visited the Bedford Cheddar’s location which has been there for years. I am from that area and remember going there many of times. After we finished with dinner, the manager came out to talk with us. He told us that the winner of the Honey Lime Chicken Wrap actually works in his kitchen. I thought that was very cool. I’m sure she is gloating every time someone orders her dish. Way to go Vivian!!
On the other side of the kid’s menu are questions to ask your kids. My husband and I were able to get to know Brody just a little bit better by all his answers to these questions. What a great family night we had! Here are a few questions:
- What three words would you use to describe yourself?
- If you could be any animal, which kind of animal would you choose?
- What have you done to help someone this past week?
There were 12 questions in all.
You’ll find Cheddar’s Scratch Kitchen’s all over the United States. Find the nearest Cheddar’s Scratch Kitchen to you so you can enjoy scratch-made food!
