We cater to children a little differently than adults as we use advice from the USDA and the Mayo Clinic on approximate portions sizes that are appropriate for specific age ranges. Our prices vary by these age ranges.
We offer two options for our children & teens menus, Classic & Mediterranean. And these menus are actually the same menus that adults choose from. Since many of our other meal plans have dietary restrictions, please email us for more information if you would like to order from a different menu for your child.
Our philosophy, especially since our head chef is from the Mediterranean region of Europe, is that children should be eating similar foods as their parents eat, and not foods from a different menu with less healthier options or "junk foods" that many American cuisines offer, such as hot dogs and French fries. This way of eating is actually backed by many world health and dietary studies which show the positive aspects of children eating this way.
When we prepare children's meals, we may use milder spices and/or substitute some ingredients that are usually more welcoming to children's palates. And of course, we will always do our best to avoid any dietary restrictions/dislikes you tell us about your child.
Please do not hesitate to email us with any questions you may have!
