The Hyatt hotel brand has introduced an exciting change to their kids menu that will make health conscious parents quite happy. Kids Menus are always lacking major big time and frankly I would rather order off the adult menu than have my kids eat from the same 3 options of pizza, pasta and hot dogs. This new menu “For Kids By Kids,” provides more nutritious, fresh and interactive offerings for the three million children served annually in all full-service Hyatt hotels and resorts throughout the U.S., Canada and the Caribbean. The menu has been developed in association with the Partnership for a Healthier America (PHA). As part of the roll out, Hyatt hotels will offer a three-course organic meal for children developed exclusively for the brand by renowned food pioneer and chef, Alice Waters.
In addition to the new menu offerings, several will present a creative way for kids to engage with their food, such as customizing their own pasta dish and “shaking” their own salad.
Select menu items include:
- Breakfast: Top Your Own Taco, a whole wheat tortilla filled with scrambled eggs, cheese and fun toppings; Waffle Dipping Sticks with peanut butter, maple syrup and fruit sauces.
- Lunch: Shaken Chopped Salad with roasted chicken, vegetables, brown rice and yogurt basil dressing; Build Your Own Whole Wheat Sub Sandwich with turkey, lettuce, tomato, cheese on a whole wheat mini-sub. (These offerings are also available during dinner hours).
- Dinner: Natural Beef grilled and served with potatoes, roasted vegetables and garden salad; Vegetable and Sesame Rice Noodles with marinated tofu, corn, green beans, basil and cherry tomatoes.
What do you think of the new menu? Would updated children’s menus such as this one entice you to stay at a certain hotel brand?
