The Heart Foundation’s Kids Choice menu guidelines are being picked up by many restaurants nationally and proving a great success according to Food & Nutrition manager Dave Monro.

The guidelines were developed following a survey last year of various venues around the country, and the results showed there was plenty of scope for work in this area.

“Many young children are developing sophisticated tastes as they are increasingly eating out with a parent,” said Monro. “The guidelines have been developed to make it easy for foodservice operators to include healthy meal options and the kid's menus can promote a key point of difference.”
