Denny's 55+ Menu, Choices for Kids & Dieters Too

When the Kid's Menu doesn't have something on it that your child fancies, then the next best spot to look is at the Senior 55+ selections.

In fact, these make great alternatives for anyone who is watching their weight.

Cholesterol, Sodium Concerns in Restaurant Selections

Take note that any item which contains eggs is going to be very steep in cholesterol values. So if your doctor has you on a cholesterol restricted eating plan, be certain that you ask for a nutrition guide from your server before placing your order.

Don't forget to look at the salt content of the item, too.

Denny's 55+ Menu, Not Exceptionally Healthy Choices

In addition, we need to highlight that while many of the selections below may be healthier than other menu items, that doesn't mean they are exceptional choices that support a healthy lifestyle.

Most contain far too much sodium and unhealthy lipids. But this applies to all fast food establishments as well as fine-dining restaurants.

You may assume by commercials that the sub, sandwich or soup that you're eating is healthy - because it has been advertised as such, but while it's low in caloric content, it might be mined with sodium which in turn can negatively impact the heart.

Menu items containing animal proteins often aren't the leanest, either. The food you're eating might consist more of bone and tissue than lean muscle.

The addition of excess salt often serves to enhance flavor and to conceal blandness. We're not insinuating that Denny's uses sub-par ingredients; our comments generally apply to most fast food and restaurant meals.
