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 Texas Restaurant Association (TRA) 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 Saturday, November 2 from 10:00am to 2:00pm at 3015 Trinity Groves, 3015 Gulden Ln, Dallas, Texas, 75212, students from 12 North Texas school districts will compete in a live cooking demonstration contest. The winner's dish will appear on the children's menu at each of the following locations: Genghis Grill, Grub Burger Bar, and Village Burger Bar.
