Family Fun and Food at Sesame Place

As summer winds down, it may be time to start planning one more family adventure.  If that adventure includes a theme park, Sesame Place could be just the park you want to head to.  Located just north of Philadelphia with a Sesame Street theme, rides, water slides, shows and more, this amusement park is fun for the whole family.

The best part, which can make spending the day there even easier for the whole family, is that Sesame Place serves both Healthy Dining and Kids LiveWell menu choices hand-picked by our team of registered dietitians for flavor and nutrition.

So pack up the kids, grab the sunblock and head out for a day of fun, complete with dietitian-recommended Healthy Dining menu choices like these:

Hamburger with Apple Slices

Yes, you can have a classic hamburger and still stick to your diet when you order this Sodium Savvy option.  A 100% USDA choice hamburger is topped with crisp lettuce and juicy tomatoes.  Opt for apple slices instead of fries for fewer calories and added fiber and nutrition.  Look for this Healthy Dining menu choice at Cookie’s Café.

Mediterranean Salad 

Get your veggies and enjoy every minute of them when you order this classic Mediterranean Salad.  The optional dressing will add extra calories and fat, enjoy without the dressing, opt for a lemon wedge instead or add dressing sparingly as needed.  This menu choice is served at Captain Ernie’s Bistro.

Southwest Vegetable Wrap

All the flavor and 2¼ cups of veggies are in this dietitian pick.  Packed with smoky Southwest-flavor and fresh vegetables, this wrap is served with sweet grapes and can be found at Cookie’s Café.  Healthy Dining’s dietitians recommend requesting less cheese (1 oz) in your wrap to keep this a Healthy Dining pick.
