Restaurant industry urged to be more 'inclusive' to children
Research from the restaurant booking platform, Bookatable.co.uk, revealed that 78% of British parents believe there is a lack of food options offered
According to the findings, 59 % of British parents said they think the food offered to kids in restaurants is unhealthy, dull and needs to be re-imagined.
Whilst over half of parents who took part in the research (57%) believe restaurant food for children has improved over the years, many still believe the industry has some way to go to making the restaurant experience ‘inclusive’ to children. Instead, 69% felt restaurants put all of their focus into creating enticing adult menus with less effort put into their children’s food offering, and 70% believe restaurants should encourage kids to try new ingredients they have never tried before and healthier foods.
