This is Day 2 of my 4 Days of Giveaways! I’m hosting a different giveaway every day.

I have proclaimed my love for Noodles & Company already.

But just to recap: I love the food (especially the Japanese Pan Noodles and the Pasta Fresca). I love that my kids love the food. And I love that it’s fast. Fast enough that my fidgety preschooler doesn’t get into too much trouble while we’re waiting for the food. Except for the time he grabbed a giant cookie from the counter display and bit right through the plastic. But that’s another post.

Today’s giveaway is for TWO free bowls of Noodles & Company noodles, plus a cute little paper and cloth bag filled with a MAC DADDY t-shirt for the man in your life and some Noodles & Company temporary tattoos for the kiddos.

To enter, leave a comment at the end of this post telling me your favorite family restaurant. To increase your odds, you can also:

  • “Like” Real Mom Nutrition on Facebook here, then leave me another comment telling me that you did.
  • Tweet about the giveaway, then leave me another comment that includes a copy of your tweet.

The giveaway ends Monday, March 19 at noon. I’ll choose a winner at random through Random.org‘s number generator.

Disclaimer: Noodles & Company provided me with the prizes and a free tasting of their Grown-Up Mac & Cheese dishes.




Noodles & Company Giveaway!

by Sally on April 26, 2011

One thing Sam will reliably eat, no trickery necessary: The macaroni and cheese at Noodles & Company. Lucky for us, Noodles (as it’s known around our house) is pretty much the only family restaurant that fits our current criteria of quick, inexpensive, and loud enough to cover any kid-related outbursts.

There’s a lot I like about the food too. I like that everything’s made to order, that you can add lean protein to any dish, and that I can order a dish of steamed broccoli on the side for the kids. They also have a great online nutrition guide, so you can make good choices if you’re watching your calories, sodium, or even avoiding gluten.

So that’s why I’m doing my first-ever giveaway. Noodles & Company recently invited us for a special tasting of their “Grown-Up” Mac & Cheeses (while Sam wouldn’t venture beyond their standard Wisconsin Mac, Henry liked the Bacon Mac & Cheeseburger, and I was partial to the Truffle Mac with Baby Portabellas). These Grown-Up Macs are only around another week, but Noodles & Company is giving one reader four coupons for free noodle bowls that can be used anytime this year.

To enter, leave a comment sharing your favorite kid-friendly restaurant and your best tip for either a) keeping your kids in their seats or b) ordering a meal for your children that doesn’t involve hot dogs or chicken nuggets.

The giveaway will run until Monday, May 2nd at 10pm EST. The winner will be chosen at random and notified by email, then have 72 hours to respond with a mailing address.


On the Menu: Full Disclosure

The last time I ate out–and I use that term loosely because it was at a Panera along I-70 in Ohio–I had a squirmy toddler, a spazzy kindergartener, and a hungry husband with me. Simply placing the order was an ordeal (“I want mac and cheese…no! I mean grilled cheese…no! I mean mac and cheese…”), […]
