Firehouse Subs...Kid Friendly???

Now don't get me wrong - I love Firehouse Subs! If you haven't had it yet you should really go. The company was founded by firemen and they make great food! Noah and I both enjoy going there. On Sunday we were doing some shopping so we stopped by for lunch. This was the first time we went there with both kids needing kids meals. Big mistake! They have a variety of sandwiches for kids such as turkey, ham, grilled cheese and pb & j which was fine. The problem was the only side choices were chips or oreo cookies and the only drink options were soda or water. I don't know about you but I am pretty picky about what I let my kids have. Milk is a must for us but they didn't even offer juice! Soda for a kid's meal??? And why can't they have a fruit or veggie option for a side? If fast food restaurants and pretty much any other food place we've ever been to can offer healthier options for our kids, why can't Firehouse? I will still be visiting them every once and a while but we will choose somewhere else when the kids are with us from now on...very sad!
