SAN DIEGO, Oct. 25, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Trick-or-treating to load up on sweets is part of the Halloween tradition. But this year, Sweet Tomatoes and Souplantation restaurants are letting parents balance things out by giving their little ghosts and goblins something healthier. Spotlighting the wholesome, fresh ingredients Sweet Tomatoes and Souplantation are known for, kids will eat free during the week of Halloween.
Halloween statistics can be a little spooky – the average child will collect 60 pieces of "fun-size" candy on Halloween night, totaling 4,800 calories, one-and-a-half cups of fat and three cups of sugar. But at Sweet Tomatoes and Souplantation restaurants, parents can design a delicious and healthier start to the holiday, with options from an endless salad bar plus a selection of 6-8 soups all made from scratch daily and fresh from-the-oven baked goods.
"Many of us are parents here at Sweet Tomatoes and Souplantation, and we know how much fun Halloween can be for the whole family. But we also know that sometimes you want to balance out the candy haul with some healthier options for everyone," said Tammy Bailey, Chief Marketing Officer of Sweet Tomatoes and Souplantation parent Garden Fresh Restaurant Corp. "That's why, this year, we're pleased to let families design their own delicious and healthier holiday with a kids eat free promotion during Halloween week."
From Monday, October 28th until Thursday, October 31st, kids 12 and under will eat free at all Sweet Tomatoes and Souplantation restaurants with the purchase of one full price adult meal, no costumes required! (one free kids meal with every adult meal purchased).
