Welcome to Kids LiveWellSM

Kids LiveWellâ„¢ LogoThe Association is working with leading restaurant brands and independent scientific experts to promote delicious, better-for-you meal options for their youngest guests. KLW menu options meet added sugar, sodium, fat, and calorie thresholds established by the latest nutrition science.

Approved menu items are clearly marked with the KLW logo, and participating restaurants offer a minimum of 2 meals and 2 sides that have undergone rigorous dietary analysis by nutritionists. 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 …

  • Applebee’s 
  • Bonefish Grill
  • Carrabba’s
  • Denny’s 
  • Firebirds
  • IHOP
  • Joe’s Crab Shack
