HOSPITAL AND RESORT PARTNER TOGETHER ON KIDS’ MENU
Virginia Resort Unveils a Menu That is Healthy and is Enthusiastically Accepted by Kids
With The Help of a Registered Dietitian
Leesburg, VA (March 2017) – Lansdowne Resort and Spa, A Destination Hotel and Inova Loudoun Hospital are partnering to encourage kids to take their first, delicious bite towards healthy eating. Over the next few months, Executive Chef Marcus Repp and Inova Registered Dietitian Wendy Johnson are joining forces to improve our children’s eating out experience.
Forget the chicken tenders, French fries and mac n cheese – a new delicious and healthy menu at Coton & Rye puts a spin on the traditional kids’ menu. The new menu includes dishes like the Sunny with a chance of Meatballs Spaghetti (turkey meatballs, crushed farm tomatoes, grated cheese, gluten-free angel hair noodles and local free-range turkey) and Rainbow Party Smoothie (kale, blueberries, raspberries and choice of almond, rice, or coconut milk).
“Eating habits are developed during childhood and by educating families during these influential years that healthy eating is a lifelong habit, our children can be healthier adults,” said Johnson.
“Inova’s mission to improve the health of our diverse community, includes children which makes them the perfect partner to complement Lansdowne’s culinary team and wellness mission,” explains Michael Stephens, Lansdowne’s Managing Director.
Together, Lansdowne Resort and Spa and Inova Loudoun Hospital want to inspire kids and their parents that you can eat healthy, without having to compromise on great flavors and satisfaction of what you are eating. The menu was even designed with kids in mind; it will be displayed on collectible cards with engaging and educational content for the entire family. The new kids menu at Coton & Rye is slated to make its debut to the public on March 1st.
