No more pencils, no more books, no more cafeteria cooks. As schools across the Triangle close for the summer, busy parents are cringing at the prospect of a steady diet of pepperoni pizzas for the next two months. That's where these kid-friendly eateries come in, providing a variety of options for the grown-up palate while still fulfilling the four basic food groups for kids: cheese, ketchup, sugar and soda.
