Fairmont adds more healthy children’s menu items

Fairmont Hotels & Resorts, Toronto, announced it will be ramping up its children’s menu offerings to include an expanded array of creative dishes that are both delicious and nutritious. 

The new children’s menu options offer a healthy twist on the usual kid-friendly favorites such as chicken strips, pizza and spaghetti with meatballs. Young diners can choose offerings such as The Fairmont Sonoma Mission Inn & Spa’s Loch Duart Salmon with Glazed Vegetables or Chicken Quesadillas with Corn Tortillas and Oaxaca Cheese at Fairmont Mayakoba. All dishes address the nutritional guidelines established for children by the Institute of Medicine of the National Academies. Proactive steps taken by Fairmont chefs include swapping out refined flour for whole wheat, incorporating fruits and vegetables into recipes and employing alternative cooking. Although the same nutritional parameters guide Fairmont chefs across the globe, actual menu offerings reflect the distinctive style and unique food products of each destination. 

The new selections will be available at all Fairmont hotels by the end of March 2012.
