As a food service administrator I have to add my comments. More and more restuarants are required to provide nutritional assessments on their menus, based on the standardized recipes the chefs are supposed to follow. But chefs have egos, there are leftovers to use, ingredients change, and no one measures much of anything (just watch the food channel). In other words, the nutritional analysis is a ball park figure.

We compared the nutritional analysis of menu items for major Seattle resturants recently (as part of a diabetic research project in which I volunteer) from the main-stream steak houses, to Red Robin, to Applebees. One can count on most "wholesome" entrees to contain 1000 Kcalories, 40 grams fat, 122 grams carbs, and 37 grams protein. Anything fried, bloomin', pasta, or sauced will be higher.

What to do? I select a protein salad with dressing on the side, shrimp cocktails, don't butter the bread, and enjoy the company I am with.

Oh Good Lord ! This is such a tremendous job! I am glad somebody has the motivation, brain and skills to put together everything!I think there are ways one can choose even if the kids have diabetes. It 's the way we live with it that makes a difference!

Good networking!

One thing you have to remember about eating out is that what the nutrition info was based on is not what you're eating and can be significantly off.

It's a good guide to have, especially for planning, but it's still important to evaluate what you actually get on the plate rather than think "great, all that food and the nutritional info said it's only x carbs!"
