Chick-fil-A is well known for their menu and while it may be somewhat simple it is well known for a reason. They do chicken well. Really well.

Just what is the best thing to get at Chick fil A? Here are our recs for each foodie age group and for those who love their grease…or healthy options.
It should be said that we don’t condone an unhealthy lifestyle, especially when it comes to food. However, we also understand how difficult it could be to stay away from Chik fil A. It’s deliciousness between two buns and it deserves to be tried and tested by everyone. So when you feel the urge to go off that healthy diet or just want to try something new, how about a bit of Chik fil A?
Toddlers and Young Children
Chicken tenders all the way for toddlers! I love that Chick-fil-A offers a fruit cup as a side with kid meals, too. This is one of our favorite aspects when traveling and trying to stay on a somewhat normal eating routine.
Our daughter is nine and addicted to salads so the Chicken Cool Wrap is something she loves as is a salad. And don’t forget you can trade in the book that comes with your kid meal and get an ice cream cone instead.
Tweens, Teens, and Adults
Around the age of eleven or twelve is when kids are suddenly hungry. All of the time. Enter the Classic Chicken Sandwich.
Sometimes the simple things are the best things and the Classic Chicken Sandwich is a great example of just that. When you have great quality ingredients and put them between a soft amazing bun and well, you just have good stuff. Good stuff that hits the spot no matter how old you are.
If I want to enjoy the breaded classic sandwich the Superfood Side is a great side instead of the fries. Some may think I am nuts for that, but every calorie counts and a small exchange like that can make a big difference.
The Grilled Chicken Sandwich is always a good option if you are trying to watch your fat intake or total caloric intake. This is the one grilled chicken sandwich that actually has flavor from any drive through.
If you are following a strict diet then the grilled chicken nuggets may be your best choice for a protein fix that won’t mess with your guidelines. Their salads and wraps are also tasty, but I miss their chicken strip salad. Sorry, but you can only eat so much grilled chicken and sometimes adding a few breaded chicken strips to a salad makes all of the difference.
Sweet Tooth Fix
One word. (Well, for me at least.)
Oh wait, I changed my mind. Two words.
Oh. My. Yum. There are fruit chunks that get stuck in your straw. If you are a peach lover like my hubby their Peach Shake is a must have. And if ice cream isn’t your thing then a Frosted Lemonade will hit the spot!
