About this Article

Sarah Stegner knows there's nothing wrong with her 7-year-old daughter eating a hamburger or slice of cheese pizza every once in a while, but for families with young kids who dine out often, those calorie-laden kid menu favorites can be in the dinner rotation far too often. So Stegner, chef/owner at Prairie Grass Cafe in Northbrook (and its sister Prairie Fire in Chicago), is sounding the call to offer smaller portions and healthier options to children.
