Kids Fit Menu Advisory Committee

The Kids Fit Menu Advisory Committee was created in May of 2016. Committee members include restaurateurs, community leaders and Texas ProStart® leaders who are passionate about making an impact on the long-term health of children in their communities.

The committee’s focus is to support and expand the outreach of the program while strengthening the connection of Texas ProStart® students to their local communities. Through collaboration and partnerships, our goal is to make the Kids Fit Menu accessible to more families and more restaurants in more communities across north Texas.
