WESTPORT, Conn. -- We get it. You like to eat. And you like to eat out. But dining with kids, especially young ones -- can sometimes get sticky -- in more ways than one. Kudos to the places that offer up pleasing menus for both adults and kids as well as surroundings that don’t feel like you’re dining at Mickey D’s.

Why It's Kid Worthy: It's healthy -- in a fun way. Petite palates love The Granola Bar’s smoothies, especially the Very Berry (strawberries, bananas, honey, yogurt, and milk) and - surprisingly - The Shrek (kale, spinach, banana, apple, house made almond butter, and almond milk). "Kids love them and moms approve because because they’re full of healthy, wholesome ingredients," said Co-Owner Dana Noorily. They’re essentially fruit, vegetables and protein disguised in a milkshake!
In addition to smoothies, adventurous and picky kids alike love The Granola Bar’s healthy alternatives to the favorite standbys, like grilled cheese, turkey sandwiches on multigrain, cheese quesadillas and house-made baked sweet potato chips.
