The ultimate grab-and-go, Pret a Manger's food is made fresh throughout the day in the same location where it's served. While there isn't a separate kids' menu, basic sandwiches like classic cheddar and tomato, hummus and veggies, and chicken and bacon are likely to appeal to little taste buds.
Where It's Located: New York, Washington DC, Chicago.
What to Pick: Any of Pret's "Slim" sandwiches are the perfect size for kiddie appetites. They're also likely to find something that appeals to them on the soup menu, which includes a rotation of options like chicken noodle, broccoli cheddar, and turkey chili. The premise here is that little ones can select from the same menu as mom and dad, just in smaller portions.
What to Skip: It's more or less all healthy stuff, so give them some freedom in choosing what they like here. Since fresh fruit is always available as a side, steer little hands toward that instead of chips or popcorn.
