Denny’s, the largest restaurant chain in the United States with more than 1,500 stores, is getting the salt out of several of its menu items, with new emphasis on its children’s menu.
Some of the changes have already taken effect, while the complete lower sodium menu items are expected to be completed by June.
Denny’s officials told Nation’s Restaurant News reports that they have reduced the sodium in their hash browns and skewered shrimp by 25 percent, and lowered the amount in their cheese sauce by 20 percent.
The Build Your Own Grand Slam breakfast has two new additions, turkey bacon and turkey sausage.
But it’s the kids who may notice the biggest changes. The Little Dipper sampler will be no more, effective in June, as well as French Tosatix will vanish from the Big Dipper, said John Dillon, senior vice president of marketing.
"We're in the process right now of finalizing what the replacement will be. We've also added carrot sticks and vegetables -- things to keep both kids and parents happy."
The parents, probably yes; the vote from the kids hasn’t come in yet.
