Popeyes launches healthful menu items

Louisiana Leaux line also features a kid’s meal

Popeyes Louisiana Kitchen has launched a more healthful menu composed of standard offerings that have been re-worked and new lower-calorie items such as green beans and applesauce.

The Atlanta-based quick-service chain debuted the menu, dubbed “Louisiana Leaux -- Get up & Geaux!” in New Orleans’ French Quarter Saturday with a flash mob dance along Bourbon Street that had more than 1,000 people, said Dick Lynch, Popeyes chief marketing officer.
