Olive Garden Nixes French Fries, Milkshakes On Kids' Menu

First Posted: 07/08/11 05:00 PM ET Updated: 09/07/11 06:12 AM ET

Olive Garden has updated its kids' menu by getting rid of french fries and milkshakes and adding grapes and fruit smoothies. The smoothies, available in strawberry, wild berry, and peach-mango, consist of a frozen blend of fruit puree and non-fat yogurt.

These new menu items may be healthier, but kids shouldn't fret too much if they are craving carbs or something fried--there are still plenty of options. The kids' menu choices are:

  • Create Your Own Pasta! (pick a pasta shape and pick a sauce)
  • Macaroni & Cheese
  • Cheese or Pepperoni Pizza
  • Cheese Ravioli
  • Chicken Fingers & Pasta

Fatty or not, all of these items are better than the chain's now-infamous sangria for toddlers.
