Fuller’s launches healthier kids menu

The new kids meals will be available in half of Fuller's pubs and will be served with interactive place-mats

UK brewer and pub operator Fuller’s is rolling out a healthier kids menu in half of its managed pubs in response to calls from parents to provide better quality ingredients and more value for money.

Launched in time for the February half-term, the new charity menu will feature ‘healthy option main courses priced from £5.95 for two courses and a drink, with 30p from each meal going towards the Shooting Star Chase children’s hospice.

“We’ve listened closely to what our customers have been saying and a couple of the most important things for parents right now are good quality ingredients and excellent value for money,” said Fuller’s head of food Paul Dickinson.

“We’ve taken great care to source the best possible ingredients for our children’s menu and have tried extremely hard to ensure they are low in salt too. I’m delighted with the results and hope that Shooting Star Chase will be just as delighted with the donation.”

The new kids meals will be served with an interactive and informative place-mat, designed to keep children occupied with a variety of word games. Additional nutritional information will also be made available to parents.

What a revalation

Do Fullers think that they have re-invented the wheel.looking for good quality ingredients and excellent value for money Quote ' ... important thing right now is that parents are looking for good quality ingredients and excellent value for money. '... nutritional information will be available for parents. The average parent would not have a clue as to what is good and bad, or what to do with the information. And what is the 'DRINK' that the lovely little darlings are supplied with their meals. It wouldn't be a C02, sugar, acid based brown liquid would it! fullers should save wasting their time and concentrate on their brilliant beers, and what they can do for high spending adults.
