Over-Procecessed Chicken Nuggets and Corn-Syrupy Dipping Sauce

If you are looking for a bit to eat on Halloween night, before the parties and the trick-or-treating, you might try a Chipolte because people will be dressed up like over-processed, unhealthy food. It is a fund raiser for Jaime Oliver’s Food Revolution that promotes healthy eating. (That is Jaime Oliver and Steve Ells, CEO of Chipotle, in the picture.) That doesn’t happen every day and I’m a fan of things that don’t happen every day.

Don’t even think I’m going to dress up, did I tell you how many little kids I have? Well, not that many, but enough to keep me from making a chicken nugget costume. But, people watching is fun for the whole family and it doesn’t cost extra. Besides that,there is the healthy food my kids like and besides that, I have a soft spot for Chipotle in my heart because the other day I saw this..

Chipotle High Chairs
The buckle on every single high chair worked. If you have a 1 1/2 year old who will stay in her high chair only if there is a little resistance to her standing up, then you know that this never happens. I don’t know what kids do with the buckles or what makes a strong buckle such a difficult engineering feat, but a restaurant with 10 high chairs and 0 working buckles is pretty common. It is a small thing, but it is kind and it makes me hungry for a burrito on Halloween.

    We love Chipotle and plan to be there Sunday ($2 burritos!). My only complaint as a parent of small children is that they have no changing tables in their restrooms. I have performed many a mid-air diaper change there, plus the occasional splish splashy change in the sink. Tricky business!

    This is an excellent idea! I love dressing up and seeing others in Halloween costumes. Plus Chipotle is a good time. Glad to hear that the high chairs work there. So this is a problem most places? We should boycott! Sounds like bad experiences to me.

  3. For some reason I can’t see the Jamie Oliver photo. And it’s good to see Chipotle doing something positive in the world’s stomach. For some reason I always associate them with McDonalds, and half-heartedly try to boycott them. Thanks to your article I researched and found out that McD’s don’t in fact own Chipotle (any more) which helps explains the High McD’s Fructose Corn Syrup ingredient list in the costume.
