The National Restaurant Association announced that Sysco Corporation will serve as a distribution partner of the award-winning Kids LiveWell program, an industry-wide initiative launched by the Association to provide parents with a growing selection of healthful children’s menu choices.

The Association launched Kids LiveWell in 2011 in collaboration with Healthy Dining to help restaurants highlight their better-for-you menu choices for children. To join the program, restaurants agree to offer and promote a selection of qualifying menu items. The initiative focuses on increasing consumption of fruit and vegetables, lean protein, whole grains and low-fat dairy, and limiting total calories, unhealthy fats, sugar and sodium.
