No matter where you go, the kids menu offers chicken fingers


Posted by Nancy B.

America is in the grips of a nefarious chicken-finger pandemic, says David Kamp in The New York Times. This blandly tasty foodstuff has become the defacto nibble of the young. "I noticed that accommodationist chefs were making chicken fingers available in Italian, Chinese and Japanese restaurants, where chicken fingers aren't even culinarily justifiable," he says. http://www.nytimes.com/2007/05/30/dining/30kids.html?_r=1&ref=health&oref=slogin

The quality of kid's meals can sometimes be questionable, but the PORTIONS are often much more reasonable than their "adult" counterpart. Many restaurants will make smaller portion sizes upon request. I eat fast (another issue) so if I get a huge portion at dinner I tend to keep eating until everything is gone because everyone else at the table is often still eating. By ordering a kid's size meal I am forced to be more reasonable.
