Chipotle Mexican Grill introduced a new kids menu recently and, to promote it, will give kids a free meal on Sundays July 11, 18, 25, and Aug. 1 when parents purchase a burrito, salad, burrito bowl, or an order of tacos.
The child-friendly menu features items like quesadillas, single tacos, and build-your own taco kit, all priced under $5. For example, a small meat-and-cheese quesadilla is $3.50 and is served with a side of rice, a small bag of chips, and a choice of organic plain milk, organic chocolate milk, apple juice, or a soda.
Whenever I hear Chipotle, I think of food crusader Michael Pollan’s comments at Goucher College in April. The author ofOminivore’s Dilemma had nothing but praise for the restaurant chain. “I wish we had more of them,” he said, citing the restaurant’s local sourcing of meat and cooking everything fresh. His words carry a lot of weight.
