Children Burger King customers can now eat healthier Satisfries at the franchise restaurant chain after the company made them available for kids meals USA Today reported Monday.

"As a parent, I know when it comes to what I feed my child, it's all about lower-fat foods that kids will actually want to eat," Eric Hirshhorn, chief marketing officer at Burger King North America told USA Today. "We all know they are the pickiest of eaters."

Satisfries proportions for the kid's meal will have 190 calories, eight grams of fat, and 210 milligrams of sodium USA Today reported.

"Fast food restaurants, like Burger King and McDonalds, making small changes to improve the nutrition profile of well-liked foods like French fries should be applauded, " Hope Warshaw, a dietician and author of "Guide to Healthy Restaurant Eating told USA Today. "It remains easier to feed kids healthier in fast food than in sit down restaurants."

Burger King introduced the fries on its adult menu in Sept, and sells the food in addition to the classic fries. The fries are crinkle cut similar to old-fashioned fries USA today reported.

A small serving of "satisfries" have 270 calories and 11 grams of fat, while its classic fries have 340 calories and 15 grams of fat.

Burger King used the same potatoes, same oil, and same process to produce its healthier fries. The only difference is a re-configuring of a few ingredients so the thinner batter does not absorb as much oil USA Today reported. The company is not revealing what ingredients it changed around.

Subway began selling a kid's meal that met governmental guidelines. And resembled contents of meals served in schools USA Today reported. These included providing apples, and low-fat milk, non-fat plain milk, and water.

The move was commended by United States First Lady Michelle Obama
