Kid's Restaurant Nutrition Facts
Hardee's Restaurant

Hardee's Kid Menu Selections High in Calories

If we order the following for Little Timmy, he will have consumed 1560 calories - more energy values than is required for petite healthy ADULT women.

Cheeseburger, 600 calories
Fry, 250 calories
Vanilla Shake, 710 calories

The hamburger and cheeseburger both exceed the energy values [calories] of many regular burgers at other fast food restaurants. The Hardee's Kid's Hamburger exceeds the calories of a Big Mac served at McDonald's. The Big Mac contains 550 calories.

It contains almost two times the calories of a Sonic Jr. burger [330 calories].

Hardee's Kid Menu Selections High in Cholesterol

Lots of cholesterol on this menu, which is very concerning. There is nothing heart-healthy on the kid's menu. Any benefits related to protein and dietary fiber is negated due to the unhealthy distribution of lipids.

Excessive Sodium Content

With a clear conscious I could not feed my child or grandchild a menu selection containing the amounts of sodium that is packed into the Hardee's Kid's menu. Come on - 1200 milligrams of salt in the hot dog?? Outrageous.

To provide a comparison, a healthy adult is advised not to exceed 2400 milligrams of salt intake daily. This ONE hot dog is HALF of that amount - and this selection is intended for children?

As a comparison, the 6" Chili Cheese Coney at Sonic contains 1280 milligrams of sodium - and it holds both cheese and chili.
