Kale and quinoa and chia seeds -- oh my! The popular fast-food chain is adding new healthy ingredients and menu items at select locations in the U.S.

Kale, quinoa, farro, chia seeds, roasted butternut squash and goat cheese: Those may sound like ingredient options you’d see at a farm-to-table eatery or your local health foods store.

However, they’re now included in a handful of new menu items at Chick-fil-A.

The fast-food chain says it plans to roll out the new items at select locations. It’s an effort to woo more health-conscious diners to its restaurants.

Chick-fil-A says its customers in New York, New Jersey, San Diego, Washington, D.C., and Columbia, South Carolina, will be the first to try out the following three breakfast items: Hash Brown Scramble, Egg White Grill Bowl and the Berry Protein Blend breakfast drink.

Meanwhile, at select Chick-fil-A restaurants in the San Francisco Bay area; Sacramento; Tampa, Florida; and Huntsville, Alabama, diners can try two new grain bowl options. They include the Harvest Kale & Grain Bowl, which offers a blend of red and white quinoa, farro, roasted butternut squash, chopped kale, goat and feta cheese, diced apples, dried cherries, roasted nuts and balsamic vinaigrette. You can also add chicken to the bowl.

If the new items are popular at their test locations, Chick-fil-A could launch them nationwide. David Farmer, vice president of menu strategy and development at Chick-fil-A, says:

“While we will always serve the classic menu items we’re known for, we are also excited to try new ingredients that we hope will satisfy our customers’ requests and allow us to stay on-top of new flavor trends. … We hope customers in the test markets think they’re delicious; we can’t wait to find out what they think to help determine if these items should be added to menus nationwide.”

What do you think about Chick-fil-A’s new menu options? Do you think they’ll be a hit or miss with diners? Sound off below or on Facebook.
