Welcome to Kids LiveWellSM

The National Restaurant Association’s Kids LiveWell (KLW) programmakes it easy for restaurant operators to offer and promote better-for-you meals to parents and children dining in their restaurants.  

The Association works with leading restaurant brands and independent scientific experts to identify menu options that meet added sugar, sodium, fat, and calorie thresholds established by the latest nutrition science. 

Participating restaurants offer a minimum of 2 meals and 2 sides that have undergone rigorous dietary analysis by Registered Dietitians. This ensures the meals align with the current nutrition science, including the 2020-2025 Dietary Guidelines for Americans, published by the U.S. Departments of Agriculture (USDA) and Health and Human Services  (HHS) every five years.  

Participating restaurants also commit to a default beverage policy that puts water, milk, and juice first, with other beverages available on request. 

Parents can look for the KLW logo beside items on the menus at many leading restaurant brands, including:
