A community group that advocates for children is adding their stamp of approval to child-friendly businesses.

Whole Child Leon gave their first award to The Red Elephant Pizza and Grill restaurant.

They say the restaurant's safe child and family-oriented environment was the reason.

That includes saran wrapping chairs and providing fun games.

The Red Elephant also does a neat artist of the month prize for kids.

"We pick a random winner every month and we contact them at the end of the month and that child receives a $50 gift certificate," said John Schrowang, president of the restaurant.

"They get to bring mom and dad in for dinner and treat mom and dad instead of mom and dad always treating them."

Whole Child Leon hopes to recognize more local restaurants for catering to families.
