Well Kiddos

Improving Kids Menus “One Restaurant and One Family at a Time.”

And the winners are!

Posted on September 18th, 2012 by Manu

The Well Kiddos Foundation is excited to announce that the San Mateo County’s “As Fresh As It Gets” award included Kid’s Menus this year. 20 restaurants pledged their interest and commitment to provide healthy options to kids. We are thrilled to know that there are so many chefs who wish to serve their youngest customers with tummy yummy healthy foods. Well Kiddos applauds these establishments for their support! Each restaurant will now receive a “2012 Healthy Menu Award”  certificate from Well Kiddos and a sticker for their door to display and encourage parents to pick healthy options when dining out.

Well Kiddos wishes to thank Ann LeClair, President & CEO at San Mateo County CVB for her leadership and support of children’s healthy eating choices. A big thank you goes also to Jessica Campbell and Melanie Deline, who were instrumental in making this award


The San Mateo County/Silicon Valley “As Fresh as it Gets” campaign began in 2006, highlighting the fresh produce and seafood in San Mateo County, as well as the area’s excellent locally made goat cheese, wines and beers. Each year, area hotels and restaurants are contacted and given information on which crops and types of seafood are in season and when they are at their peak, as well as information on where to buy the products locally. Qualifying restaurants serving these products receive an annual As Fresh as it Gets award. Winners are honored at a special reception with growers, nurserymen and wine and beer makers. Federal, State and County commendations

are given to the winners. The program has also been recognized by the U.S. Department of Commerce. Visit our [Cook Fresh] section to purchase “As Fresh as it Gets” Cookbooks featuring locally grown San Mateo County products.
