Parents who choose Fairmont know they are getting first class service and amenities for their children, whether they have toddlers, tweens or teenagers in tow.
For families who believe eating well but wisely begins at an early age, Fairmont offers expanded children’s menus including an array of creative dishes that are both delicious and nutritious. With a nod to the brand’s Lifestyle Cuisine - that addresses common dietary requests such as low-fat, vegetarian and low-carbohydrate - the brand’s children’s menus offer a healthy twist on the usual kid-friendly favorites such as chicken strips, pizza, spaghetti with meatballs and even chocolate mousse, as well as nutritious takes on locally inspired offerings. Chefs are in the process of swapping out refined flour for whole wheat, incorporating fruits and vegetables into recipes to help meet the recommended daily fiber allowance, and employing alternative cooking methods to help ensure healthier choices are made available to young diners. At all Fairmont hotels, children aged 5 and under eat free from the children’s menu while kids aged 6-12 eat for half price when ordering from the regular menu.
