Summer break is the most exciting period for kids. To make it rather delectable, Holiday Inn Aerocity hosted a perfect workshop where kids donned the chef’s hat for a day and prepared some exotic dishes. The idea was to engage and promote healthy habits among children. For the activity, the hotel chain had collaborated with global food artiste Samantha Lee. Using dishes from the brand’s new Kids Menu, Samantha transformed five dishes from the nutritionally balanced menu into kid-friendly works of art.
Using the theme of animal portraits, each artwork created by Samantha was designed to engage kids and their parents and encourage them to explore nutritious eating in a fun way. With the corresponding and easy to follow ‘how-to’ guides, parents were given tips they need to recreate food art at home using the original recipes.
Samantha Lee elaborated, “I started off creating food art for my daughter to encourage her to be more adventurous with food, so a partnership with Holiday Inn to help inspire thousands of children and their parents, helping them discover new and exciting flavours is a cause that I knew I had to be a part of. Not only do we want kids to get excited about balanced eating, we want parents to see how to make food fun for their little ones.”
Lee Lin Teo, Head of Brand Marketing (Holiday Inn Brand Family, Crowne Plaza and Staybridge Suites) AMEA, IHG, said: “We were the first brand to launch a ‘Kids Stay & Eat Free’ programme and we’re constantly looking for ways to improve the experience we offer to guests, and food is a big part of the travel experience. We created our new Kids Menu because we wanted to make sure families are making the most of their time together, with kids enjoying colourful and tasty dishes and with parents relaxed knowing that all the dishes have been created with nutrition at their core.”
Some of the dishes on offer as part of the Holiday Inn Kids Menu include DIY Lettuce Cup, Lamb Skewers, Chicken and Pea Risotto, Rice Paper Rolls, Lentil Curry and for dessert kids can choose from favourites such as Apple Crumble, Fruit Popsicle and Banana Split, made with yoghurt instead of ice cream.
The Holiday Inn Kids’ Menu is available in all Holiday Inn hotels and resorts across Asia, Middle East and Africa.
