WHEAT RIDGE Colo. Qdoba Mexican Grill has earned the Smart Meal Seal from the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment for four menu items.
The health department introduced the program more than two years ago to help restaurants promote healthful menu options for consumers. More than 100 area McDonald’s restaurants participate in the program by bundling together various menu items.
Qdoba’s approximately 58 restaurant in Colorado will feature four Smart Meals in April: the Poblano Pesto Naked Burrito, which contains 23 net grams of carbohydrates and 11 grams of fiber; the Naked Taco Salad, which has 330 calories; the Garlic Herb Grilled Veggie Naked Taco Salad, which contains 3.5 grams of fat and 200 calories, 35 of which are from fat; and the Naked Burrito, which contains 10 grams of fat and 540 calories, 110 of which are from fat.
The more than 400-unit Qdoba, based here, is a wholly owned subsidiary of San Diego-based Jack in the Box.
