Au Bon Pain

A French-inspired bistro with a focus on health and nutrition (Health magazine named it one of America's healthiest restaurants), Au Bon Pain has something to suit just about every taste. Kid-specific options include a cheese or turkey sandwich on farmhouse rolls, a grilled chicken sandwich on multigrain, and macaroni and cheese.

Where It's Located: Alabama, Connecticut, Washington DC, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia, Wisconsin.

What to Pick: The grilled chicken on multigrain bread is a protein-packed option that's sure to keep your little one satiated all afternoon. For a snack to go, check out ABP's "Portions" offerings, which include smaller servings of nutritious snacks like hummus and cucumbers; cheddar, fruit, and crackers; and apples, blue cheese, and cranberries.

What to Skip: At 560 calories and 35 grams of fat, avoid the macaroni and cheese. While its gooey goodness appeals to little ones and it does serve up a generous portion of calcium and carbs, there are a bevy of better-balanced options to choose from here.
