Chick-fil-A’s New Kid’s Meal Offers More

I have never been more excited! My favorite fast food chain Chick-fil-A has announced that they are going to be offering a new Kid’s Meal that is better for our kids! I addressed this with Dan Cathy, president & COO of Chick-fil-A last year. You can read my interview here.

This week, Chick-fil-A rolled out a new Kid’s Meal, featuring Grilled Nuggets as an entrée. Compared to an “average” hamburger kid’s meal offered at fast food restaurants, the new Chick-fil-A Kid’s Meal (grilled nuggets [4-count], fruit cup and low fat milk) contains almost 60% less calories and an estimated 85% less fat. They also added Buddy Fruits® Pure Blended Fruit To Go Applesauce.

The even better news is that the Grilled Nuggets are Gluten Free along with Buddy Fruits® Pure Blended Fruit To Go Applesauce, which contains 100% pure fruit. Now, gluten intolerant kids can enjoy the Grilled Nuggets – a gluten-free entrée option and the Fruit Cup and Buddy Fruits® Applesauce – two gluten-free side item options!

The posh boy really loved the Grilled Nuggets! At first, he did not know how to enjoy the Buddy Fruits® Applesauce because you don’t use a spoon but squeeze. After he figured it out, it was finished in minutes. To quote him, “Mmmm…”

As you know, I am a raving fan, but I love how Chick-fil-A is always willing to listen to its customers and offer menu items for ALL.


  1. This sounds awesome. My daughter always peels the crunchy stuff off the nuggets she gets anyway so these will be perfect for her. Can’t wait till they roll this out at our CFA!!

  2. I wish we had chic fil a in Canada. Yummy spicy sandwich.

  3. What do you know about that Buddy Fruits stuff? My son loves the food-in-pouch stuff, curious what Buddy is like. Is it organic? Does it have tons of fillers and preservatives? Might need to look it up because the wife loves Chick-Fil-A.

  4. Tara, I think your daughter will love it! Paula, all my Canadian relatives stop at Chick-fil-A every time they are in town 🙂 Colin, here’s the information on Buddy Fruit: You can find them at grocery stores.
