Olive Garden Nixes French Fries, Milkshakes On Kids' Menu

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.
