Get the Nutrional Facts on Kid's Meals! | Latina On a Mission

As a Mom, I want my boys to have the best. The best schools, the best parks, and most importantly the best food whenever possible. I’m sure you want the best for your kids as well!  Most Moms do.

This week I am joining MomsRising’s weekly #FoodFri Tweetchat to discuss the best, and worst, Kids Meals found at chain restaurants. Given that summer is right around the corner, and 91% of Kids Meals at chain restaurants do not meet industry’s own nutrition standards, I want to be prepared to steer my family toward the chain restaurants that do meet standards. Because, really, I want the best for my kids. Don’t you?

Below is the information to join in the conversation. No sign-ups required. But, if you have any questions or want to leave your Twitter name in a comment below, feel free to do so.
