BROOKLYN - Parents looking for healthier meal options for their children may have it a little easier now that some fast-food restaurants will begin offering reduced-calorie choices on their kids' menus.

Eateries like Burger King and IHOP say they will offer combo meals that have 600 calories or less and include a side dish that has less than 200 calories.

Many parents say they are happy to see the new options on the menus.
