eat this instead pizza vs. sampler

The Baltimore Sun

The good news is that kids younger than 10 eat free at participating Denny's restaurants with the purchase of an adult meal, 4 p.m.-10 p.m. Tuesdays-Saturdays. The not-so-good news is that it's easy for those meals to break the bank on fat, calories and sodium. The Little Dippers Sampler, pictured with fruit, looks like a good choice, but it's got 23 grams fat and a whopping 1,200 milligrams sodium - before you even get to the fruit or the dressings. Flying Saucer pizza has a better profile.
