Easy Meals

There are so many great dining options in Los Angeles! Located where we are, we have great seafood and sushi options, and delicious Mexican and other Latin American foods available. In addition, Los Angeles is such a cultural melting pot that we can basically indulge in any kind of traditional foods. And on top of that, LA attracts some of the best chefs in the world! We definitely can’t complain about good dining options, but with kids we sometimes just want something quick, tasty and easy.

What we’ve found to be healthy and good food options with kids on the fly are some of the food bars which let you put together your own salad bowl, rice bowl, burrito or asian noodle bowl. You choose what goes in and on top, which is great for pleasing everyone’s food likes and dislikes in one go. Here are some of our favorite fast, healthy and kid-friendly options:

Chipotle: Mexican Grill lets you make your own rice bowls, tacos, burritos or salads. Absolutely delicious and very fast!

Cava: Flavorful and healthy casual Mediterranean restaurant featuring customizable salads, grain bowls or wraps. Their dips and sauces are superb!

Mixt: Farm fresh salads, sandwiches and grain bowls and all environmentally sustainable food! Chose one of their dishes or design your own.

Bibibop: Asian inspired food bar, where you can chose between a rice bowl, noodle bowl, a roll or a salad with your own choice of toppings, such as beans, beansprouts, chicken, steak or tofu, and various shredded veggie options on top.

Mendocino Farms: There are seven Los Angeles locations serving the best sandwiches made from fresh organic ingredients with weekly specials! Always something new to try!

Lemonade: Offers a colorful selection of healthy, delicious and seasonal menu items. You can select 2, 3 or 4 sides for your plate (the choice is tough!), or select one of their pre-made sandwiches, or add a protein to your sides. As the name suggests, they also have the best lemonades in town. Also, check out their deserts!

In-N-Out Burger: Quality, fresh and iconic burgers, specific to California. They don’t freeze, pre-package or microwave their food. Don’t leave California without having tried a burger and fries if you are from out of town!
