Jack in the Box Takes a Bite Out of Kid's Meals

Jack in the Box restaurants are giving parents yet another option for customizing their child’s Kid’s Combo Meal. Jack in the Box will offer Chiquita Apple Bites with Caramel as a free substitution in Kid’s Combo Meals and as an a la carte side option.

“Jack in the Box offers a lot of variety with our Kid’s Combos, from grilled or crispy chicken strips, a grilled cheese sandwich, and hamburger to low-fat milk, juice, and fountain beverages,” says Tracy Dunn, director of menu marketing and promotions for Jack in the Box Inc.

“And now parents have the opportunity to include juicy, red apple slices in their child’s order with our new Chiquita Apple Bites with Caramel," Dunn says. "At just 70 calories per package, including the caramel dip, they‘re a great addition to any meal.”

The new Chiquita Apple Bites with Caramel meet the nutritional criteria for HealthyDiningFinder.com, an independent online resource that helps consumers easily identify lighter options at restaurants.

Other Jack in the Box items meeting Healthy Dining’s nutritional criteria include the Chicken Fajita Pita, Chicken Teriyaki Bowl, Grilled Chicken Salad, and 16-oz. Real Fruit Smoothies.
