Panera CEO Hasn't Heard from 3 Burger CEOs on Kids Menu Challenge

Panera Bread sunset

Back on September 20, Panera Bread CEO Ron Shaich issued a public challenge to the CEOs of Wendy's, McDonald's and Burger King to eat exclusively from their children's menus for a week or rethink what they're serving children. While McDonald's the company responded that they were proud of their food, none of the CEOs themselves replied or took up the challenge, Shaich said a week later. A quick check just now shows no public reaction from the Big 3 CEOs.

Taking the so-called #KidsMenuChallenge to heart, Panera followed up later that day [September 20], posting a picture of Shaich digging into lunch from the kids menu, and tagging the three fast food giants again.

"I can tell you I would happily live off Panera's kids menu," Shaich said.

…But in the days since, Shaich claims nothing back, according to NPR.

…Meanwhile, chains including Arby's, Chick-fil-A and Chipotle have been trying to make things right by offering organic milk, applesauce, and fresh fruits as sides. — Fox News
