Childhood obesity has more than tripled within the last 30 years and research suggests that eating fruits and vegetables may help maintain a healthy body weight.
To help combat this problem, Medical City Children’s Hospital and Greater Dallas Restaurant Association (GRDA) collaborated with Texas ProStart culinary programs in high schools across North Texas to develop healthy children’s menus for local restaurants. All recipes on the Kids Fit Menu’s include two or more servings of fruits and/or vegetables.
On Sunday, December 3 from 2:30 p.m. to 6 p.m. at 3015 Trinity Groves, 3015 Gulden Ln., Dallas, Texas, 75212, students from 17 DFW-area school districts will compete in a live cooking demonstration contest. The winner’s dish will appear on the children’s menu at one of the following locations: On the Border, El Fenix, Topgolf or Snuffer’s.
