Even though restaurant chains are increasingly adding fruits, veggies and low-fat drinks to their kids' meals, a new report shows that very few meet federal nutritional standards.
The Center for Science in the Public Interest found that some meals at chains like Applebee's and Denny's, for example, have nearly 1,000 calories.
Health experts recommend that children ages 4-10 eat between 1,200-2,200 calories over an entire day.
Only one chain, Subway, passed the nutritional standards with its kids' sized sub sandwiches.
