Last year, I was one of the lucky people who got to collaborate with Spur and give some input into their proposed new Kids menu. After careful consideration, Spur has now launched the new Kids menu which has been revamped to offer kids an exciting new range of Better-for-you options to complement their old favourites. Yay!
I am so glad to hear that several of our group’s suggestions have been included, giving kids wholesome menu choices. As well as the fall-back burger and chips, kids can now also choose from the ‘Better for you’ page: grilled chicken, sweet potato fries, mielies, and mash for example.
When parenting blogger Natasha of The Rabbit Haus conveyed her dissatisfaction about kiddies menus, including that of Spur steak ranches it gave Spur a wake-up call. For decades, Spur has been the favourite restaurant of South African families but it’s about time that they reworked their kiddies menu to give South African children “better-for-you” meal choices. In order to do so, Spur also felt that it is important to collaborate with parents, the media and the government in the development thereof – and I was one of the lucky ones who got to be part of the process via a Spur Better-For-You- Menu Taste Testing at the Spur Test Kitchen in Century City last week.
I was really excited to attend as Alyssa loves going to the Spur and it was really refreshing to hear that Spur is taking initiative and that they are looking out for the well being and the health of our children.
