Our healthy, tasty new children’s menu!
Children are of course “little people” I myself own two of these “little people” so know a bit about what makes them function more efficiently!
I’ve spent a lot of time working with our Chef developing our children’s menu using my own experiences and that of my colleagues (who just happen to be parents as well!) I wanted something that really worked on all levels. Feeding my children, fresh (and organic where possible) food is hugely important to me and I like to try and continue this even when I’m away from home. I wanted to make sure here at the hotel that was possible for those of you with families.
This meant creating dishes that were not only healthy and well balanced, but dishes that children would actually enjoy choosing and of course eating! In fact some of the dishes are just as I make them for my own children at home. Of course here they are created by a team of award winning chef’s and ok, I don’t quite put fish that was landed a day or so ago in my fish pie, but you see what I mean! The point is we all want our kids to eat their meals without feeling like we’re torturing them at the same time!
In some hotels and restaurants the children’s menu seems to have been an after thought. You quite often get smaller portions of the main menu (where’s the thought in that!) Or it’s simply everything and anything with fries! At the Beech Hill we’ve certainly tried to taken a different approach.
For me, this is as important as our main menu. We use fresh, local ingredients to produce a balanced menu that children of all ages can enjoy. Dishes are cooked to order and so it’s not simply transferring something from the freezer to the oven!
We have a copy of our children’s menu on our site so please do take the time to look over it and if you have any suggestions or comments I’d be more than happy to hear them.
