Something to tweet about: Kids LiveWell celebrates 3rd birthday

The National Restaurant Association’s Kids LiveWell initiative is celebrating its third anniversary throughout the month of July and would like to invite you to join in the celebration. Mark your calendars for Thursday, July 24 at 3:00 p.m. ET for a Kids LiveWell Twitter party.

The National Restaurant Association, in its continuing effort to promote more nutritious kids menu options, has invited Joy Dubost, Ph.D., R.D., its senior director of food and healthy living to answer some of your questions live from @joyofnutrition. To join the conversation, follow Kids LiveWell on Twitter at @KidsLiveWell and tweet with the hashtag #KidsLiveWellChat.

In addition to celebrating the Kids LiveWell program’s third birthday, the Twitter party will focus on:

·         The importance of restaurants offering nutritious options for kids

·         Tips for helping kids to make healthful choices

·         How to find nutritious menu options while on-the-go

“We are thrilled to be celebrating the third anniversary of the Kids LiveWell program and are proud of how much participation we have received from restaurants and foodservice operations in just three  short years,” said Joy Dubost. “It is important for families and caregivers to be part of the conversation to build awareness about the nutritious choices available when dining out with children.”

Those that participate in the Twitter party using the hashtag will have the opportunity to win a gift card to the Kids LiveWell restaurant of his or her choice. Winners will be randomly selected throughout the chat.

The Kids LiveWell initiative, which launched in 2011, is focused on providing healthful menu choices for children by increasing servings of fruits and vegetables, lean protein, whole grains and low-fat dairy, while limiting unhealthful fats, sugar and sodium.

There are more than 145 restaurant brands representing over 42,000 locations nationwide participating in the program.
