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.
