Panera Bread's Fall Celebration and Kids Meal Promise + $25 giveaway

Disclosure:  My family and I were provided with a Panera gift card to try these new meals in exchange for our honest review.  All opinions are my own. 



We as a family try to not eat out for dinner as much as we used to but lately with after school activities, work schedules and crazy vacations we have seen more restaurants than usual.  As we try to decide where to stop for dinner we find ourselves at the doors of Panera Bread more often than not.  We trust Panera with their meals, ingredients and vision plus the food is always so amazing.  


A few weeks ago we took a trip to Panera after a late Taekwondo class and we were pleasantly surprised with information about the Kids Meal Promise and the new Fall Celebration menu.  Let me tell you all about this Kids Meal Promise that we are so supportive of and excited to see be brought to the 38 Panera Bread Cafes in Colorado.  

What is Kids Meal Promise?


Panera Bread believes a kids meal should be:
  • CLEAN
    • No artificial artificial flavors, preservatives, sweeteners and colors
  • FULL OF DELICIOUS OPTIONS
    • Let kids be kids - picky.  Let them choose their meals but offer options that are tasty and wholesome
  • TRUSTWORTHY 
    • No gimmicks, distractions, toys or crazy shapes of food
  • NUTRITIONAL PAIRS
    • Sides that are wholesome - no onion rings or fries but instead apples, yogurt or whole grain rolls
  • DRINKS OPTIONAL
    • Meals do not automatically have the kids heading to the soda fountain - add juice or milk as an option rather than a soda



Happy and full kiddos and parents that feel good about the "fast" meal that was provided on a busy evening.  Love that feeling.  I am happy that we can head to Panera and feel good about the meals our kids are eating.  

I know you are all wondering about the Fall Celebration options too. I was so excited to try a new sandwich called the Chipotle Chicken Avocado Melt. Avocado on sandwiches is one of my very favorite meals. This sandwich was amazing. Perfectly dressed and warm for a fall evening.



I think the consensus around our country is that we are all trying to eat better, cleaner and smarter and Panera Bread has us covered. When standing in line for our meal I found that they have over 5 clean sandwich options and all of them sound great. The Chipotle Chicken Avocado Melt is one of those options. Yum!!   Other new fall items to be on the look out for is the Cinnamon Crunch Snickerdoodle Cookies and Carrot Pineapple Smoothies! I cannot wait to make another visit soon, this time we will get dessert!  

#Baconfess -- Panera Bread


For all you bacon lovers Panera will become your best friend.  This fall they have decided to CLEAN bacon!  Bacon that is delicious but free of artificial preservatives!!  What?!?!  Yup, eat up bacon fans!  


There are so many new and yummy options rolling into Panera Bread this fall season.  I hope that you decide to take a night off from the kitchen and the running around to enjoy a nice meal with your family at Panera soon.  Do not miss out on these delicious items.
