Kids eat free at Jason’s Deli
Going back to school can be stressful for parents and their children. To ease the transition, Jason’s deli is offering a week of free meals for children at four locations in Southwest Florida through Sunday, Aug. 12. For every adult entrée and drink purchased, families will receive up to two complimentary kids’ meals. Jason’s deli offers fresh, healthy and convenient meal options that appeal to all ages.
The offer has some restrictions as it only applies to dine-in service, and the children under 12 must be present.
Last year, Parent’s Magazine recognized Jason’s deli as the No. 1 family restaurant chain in the nation. That award was based on an analysis of the food’s content, including: calories, fat, saturated fat and sodium. Editors then looked at the quality of the ingredients (such as whether organic milk or antibiotic–
free chicken were offered), and conveniences like call-ahead seating, online ordering, crayons to keep the kids busy, and availability of high chairs and booster seats.
In 2009, Jason’s deli became the first national restaurant to ban high fructose corn syrup in its food. In 2010 it went a step further, eliminating artificial colors and dyes from its menu. The motivation for these changes started in the late 1990s when Jason’s deli began researching the removal of artificial trans fats from the menu.
In Southwest Florida, participating Jason’s deli locations include: Port Charlotte: 1100 El Jobean (SR 776 at U.S. 41); Fort Myers: 13550 Reflection Pkwy. at Cypress Lake Drive; Cape Coral: 2311 Santa Barbara near Veterans Pkwy.; Naples: 2700 Immokalee Road at Airport Pulling Road. ¦
