Hyatt Regency Clearwater Beach Resort and Spa launches a new, healthier children’s menu offering fun, fresh and flavorful items including three-course organic menu developed by Alice Waters.
Hyatt Regency Clearwater Beach Resort and Spa announced in July the launch of a new, innovative menu, “For Kids By Kids,” which provides more nutritious, fresh and interactive offerings for children. The menu is grounded in Hyatt’s industry-leading philosophy Food. Thoughtfully Sourced. Carefully Served. – promoting healthy people, a healthy planet and healthy communities – and has been developed in association with the Partnership for a Healthier America (PHA). As part of the roll out, separate from the PHA commitment, Hyatt Regency Clearwater Beach will also offer a three- course organic menu for children developed exclusively by renowned food pioneer and chef, Alice Waters.
The “For Kids By Kids” menu was tasted, tested and approved by kids, including 11-year-old cooking enthusiast Haile Thomas, who is spearheading a campaign for healthy eating through her online cooking show, Kids Can Cook. Hyatt’s food and beverage team worked with Haile and her peers to ensure offerings on the menu not only meet the brand’s standards for nutrition and quality, but are also fun. Through their research, Hyatt learned that kids today have a greater level of sophistication in their taste preferences, but also enjoy items with which they can interact. To that end, new menu offerings will present a creative way for kids to engage with their food, such as customizing their own pasta dish and “shaking” their own salad.
With their new “For Kids By Kids” menu, Hyatt is making children’s health a priority and strives to make the healthy choice, the easy choice for guests. Sample items from the new Hyatt Regency Clearwater Beach Resort and Spa “For Kids By Kids,” menu 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.
