Applebee’s on Wednesday rolled out a totally revamped kids menu, with 10 meals designed to meet national restaurant industry nutrition standards.

The Kansas City-based chain said the 10 meals approved by the National Restaurant Association’s Kids LiveWell program are the most among all national casual dining chains. The company said the new kids menu “moves away from a one-size fits all to a two-tiered offering for entrees, with a selection of sides and beverages to complete the meal.”

Applebee’s said its previous kids menu had just two meals that qualified under the Kids LiveWell nutritional guidelines.
