Add fruit appeal to kids meals with Dole

Add fruit appeal to kids meals with DoleWhile operators are making impressive strides to introduce healthful items onto adult menus, little headway has been made when it comes to kids meals, where chicken fingers, mac ‘n cheese and grilled cheese sandwiches are still standard fare. As parents demand that kids be offered more nutritious alternatives, Dole recommends simple strategies to make wholesome items into appealing, natural choices.

  • Capitalize on flavor and curiosity. Young diners are more food-savvy and curious when trying new things, often ordering off adult menus. Introduce exciting tropical tastes like mango in Fruit Lemonade or create a tasty, healthy riff on a dessert favorite with Raspberry Greek Yogurt Ice Cream Sandwiches.
  • Make dining fun and interactive. Kids can’t resist DOLE Fruit Squish’ems, 100% all natural fruit–no artificial flavors, no HFCS, no genetically modified or engineered ingredients, no added sugar–in a hand-held, squeezable pouch.
  • Find nutritional balance. Help kids choose a thoughtful meal with balanced portion sizes and nutritional value. DOLE Fruit Bowls in 100% Juice supply important fruit goodness in convenient 4-ounce and 7-ounce portions.
