d? I would love to say it's c, or even none of the above because all of those stats are riduclous for a kids meal, but I know I'd be wrong. It's seriously shocking how horrible some foods are for you. I live in NYC so all food places are now required to post nutritional stats in clear view on their menus... from starbucks to mcdonalds... and can I say - good lord!

I'll go with c, because I'm hopeful, and that kids pizza is pretty dinky. :D I just checked my answer, and while I won't give it away, I am happy to know that UNO posts nutritional information online, and even has their website available in their restaurants. (next step, I hope, is having it printed on the actual menu) They may not offer the best choices (deep dish...YIKES) but, I sure appreciate having the knowledge available.
