JW Marriott Goes Healthy With New JW Kids Menu
As a family who travels often we have found that healthy eating can definitely be a challenge. We tend to bring plenty of homemade snacks with us and if a restaurant’s menu is not the most appealing we aren’t shy about asking the chef to make us something special, in fact we do that quite often. JW Marriott Hotels & Resorts has partnered with nationally recognized nutritionist and author Keri Glassman to create a new JW Kids Menu, specifically for junior jetsetters and is designed to encourage healthy eating. Menu items include comfort food favourites with a healthy twist.
Available for breakfast, lunch and dinner, the JW Kids Menu is divided into three sections:
- Kids Nosh – This section includes items such as fresh-cut cucumber and carrot sticks with a low-fat yogurt ranch dip or cheese cubes and grapes that will quiet grumbling tummies while kids explore their new activity book and parents peruse the dinner menu.
- Big Kids – Catering to junior jetsetters who may not view themselves as kids, this section features well-balanced, recognizable favorites like turkey meatballs along with “mini” adult offerings for more sophisticated palates such as grilled organic chicken.
- This, That & the Other – To empower kids to make their own healthy choices, this section allows younger guests to mix-and-match with guidance from parents, letting them explore a variety of nutritious offerings while encouraging their imaginations.
Sustainable, organic and locally sourced ingredients are the main focus here. They’ve added a bit of a playful twist as well as each mean comes accompanied by an artistic activity book, crayons and a take-home reusable cup. The menu itself is kind of neat too. The mini cartoon leads kids through art activities, games and food choices, helping mix-and-match the right meal and teaching important nutrition information along the way.
