Kids Will Enjoy Eating Healthy with “Sun Power”
It can be difficult while on vacation to
find healthy menu alternatives for kids. Thankfully, the Arizona Biltmore Resort
& Spa thought up a “sun-powered” menu that is a healthy and delicious
alternative to the typical hotel children’s menu. The new Sun Power Kids Menu
puts a kid’s spin on some of today’s most popular dishes and foods, and uses
only fresh, natural and low-fat ingredients.
menu, served at various restaurants at the resort, offers such items as Grilled
Peanut Butter & Jelly Roll-Up, (with low-fat peanut butter, low-carb tortillas
and sugar-free jelly), Prime Turkey Dog on Whole Wheat Bun, Cabana Club Spa
Quesadilla (with low-carb tortillas and Alpine Lace low-fat cheese), Café Turkey
Sliders (mini-turkey burgers on whole wheat buns), Grilled Breast of Chicken
(with angel hair pasta, steamed broccoli, vine-ripened tomatoes, basil and light
marinara), and Romaine & Green Leaf Veggie Chopped Salad. All selections come
with choice of mashed potatoes, tater tots, oven-baked potato chips, carrots,
green beans or crisp vegetables with healthy dips; a choice of drink (fruit
juice, low-fat or soy milk); and dessert choice of either a tropical fruit bowl,
berry yogurt and granola parfait, or house-made sorbets.
The menu is themed around the sun because
of the critical role the sun plays in our health – all of the energy available
to our bodies comes from the sun and is stored in the foods we eat – as well as
because of the abundance of sun enjoyed in Phoenix throughout the year.
The legendary Arizona Biltmore, known as
the “Jewel of the Desert” and renowned for its Frank Lloyd Wright-inspired
design, is nestled on 39 acres at the foot of the Phoenix Mountain Preserve.
Facilities include 738 guest accommodations; eight swimming pools; seven tennis
courts; full-service Spa, Salon and Fitness Center; two 18-hole PGA golf
courses, and an 18-hole putting course.
