3 Ways to Make Eating Out Fun and Healthy for Kids
Is there a shortage of restaurants serving healthy meals for kids in your area? Known to be picky eaters, children are challenging to feed. What’s more is that parents are becoming conscious of what they feed to their little ones. As a restaurant owner, you have to meet this demand. Here are some healthy meal ideas you can add to your menu:
This is an evenly textured, flavoursome sauce made from pureed fruit or vegetable. This thick delectable liquid is common in fine dining restaurants used by chefs to make dessert plates even more appetising. Raspberries, strawberries, blackberries—all kinds of berries—are popular choices for Coulis served over ice cream, pudding or yoghurt. Did you know that strawberries are richer in Vitamin C than oranges? Raspberries likewise boast this immunity-boosting nutrient. They’re good sources of fibre, as well.
An open pie with a colourful filling, fruit tarts may require time and skill but they are richer in nutrients than most sweets. You can make any fruit into a tart. An easy way to mix different types of fruits, this nutritious alternative to cake and candy could attract many health-conscious parents to the table. MorCo Fresh recommends contracting with wholesale fruit and vegetable suppliers for fiber-rich apples, cancer-fighting blackberries or vitamin C-rich sleep-enhancing kiwi. Good pre-made crusts from wholesalers should make the preparation process easier, as well.
Pasta with Tomato Sauce
Is tomato a fruit or a vegetable? It doesn’t really matter. What’s important is that kids should have more of them. Children love spaghetti and you can make this pasta dish healthier by adding a sauce made from fresh tomatoes. Tomatoes are rich in Lycopene, which helps prevent diseases. They also contain Lutein and beta-carotene, which protect the eyes from damage caused by light. Tomato goes well with both meat and bread, too.
These are only some of the dishes you can add to your child-friendly menu. Know more healthy options you can offer to your customers.
