Good news for Olive Garden and Red Lobster fans. The two restaurants are the latest chains to reduce calories and sodium on its menus, including kid’s menus.

According to this MSNBC article, parent company Darden Restaurants, Inc. will start to slash calories across all its restaurants, which also include Longhorn Steakhouse and Bahama Breeze chains. In addition, the company said that each restaurant will offer at least one kids’ meal option under 600 calories.

This news follows a bundle of restaurants already offering lower calorie options. While high calorie indulgences will still be available on the menus, this will hopefully give restaurant goers healthier choices for themselves and their children.

Now tell us: Have you tried one of the low-calorie menus yet at your favorite chain? What did you think?
