10 Excuses to go to Chick-fil-A instead of cooking dinner tonight

10 Excuses to go to Chick-fil-A instead of cooking dinner tonight

One of my favorite things about being a Chick-fil-A ambassador is that it gives me an excuse not to cook dinner. My kids look forward to our visits and everyone is happy with our meal.

We enjoy quality time as a family and no one has to prep food or clean up afterward.

Chick-fil-a Houston Road

As summer approaches you might need an excuse to change up the routine and CFA Houston Road will have lots of activities for the kids to enjoy.

Chick-fil-a Houston Road

#1 Did you know that when you purchase a kids meal that you can trade in the unopened toy for a FREE “Ice Dream?”

I will warn you that your kids will probably never choose the toy once they have this knowledge.

#2. Your Kid’s Meal Bags can provide extra entertainment by flipping your bag upside down and used as a cow puppet.

#3 The play area is CLEAN and a great way for kids to burn off some energy.

#4 Free table mats that CFA offers that are perfect for babies/toddlers.

#5 Healthy menu choices.  Just because you are eating out, doesn’t mean that you can’t eat healthily.

The kids’ meals offer grilled nuggets, buddy fruits, fruit cups, and low fat white or chocolate milk.


All of these are gluten-free!
