Kate Robertson

It can be a challenge to create a varied child-friendly menu with meal options that appeal to both the young and the young at heart. But Simplot Foodservice has your back, offering a range of delicious kid-approved dishes that are sure to entice families to keep coming back for more.

1. South American Flathead Fish Bites

Fish and chips are an industry staple but to make it even more kid-friendly, you can use I&J South American Flathead Fish Bites, made from wild caught flathead and coated in a light and crispy batter.

The smaller size makes the Fish Bites perfect for young ones and, teamed with perfectly seasoned golden chips and a colourful salad, it is a complete and comforting meal. You can even serve it with a side of tangy tartar sauce to cater to adventurous diners, young and older, who like a little extra zing.



2. Sweet Potato Chips

Made from Australian sweet potatoes, Edgell’s 10mm chips burst with its signature coating, delivering the perfect balance of delicious savoury flavour with a satisfying crunch.
You can offer them as a standalone chip option or they could be a side dish to a burger. Another option is to include them as part of a healthy Sweet Potato Nourish Bowl, with a rice salad, cherry tomatoes, spinach and shredded cabbage and corn kernels that will leave the young ones licking their lips with delight.



3. Delicious Vegetable Patties

Bursting with flavour, I&J’s Vegetable Patties are a tempting choice for both kids and their parents.

Created with a medley of fresh vegetables and savoury spices, these patties are a great way to parents to sneak some greens on their kids’ plates. Serve them with a dollop of creamy yoghurt dip with salad and chips, or in a soft burger bun for a hands-on treat.



4. Yummy Bean-Based Tacos

Tacos are a universal favourite and, with Edgell Bean-Based Tacos, you can create a kid-friendly version that's both tasty and nutritious.

If your staff can handle a little mess, they can even serve a selection of toppings like grated cheese, shredded lettuce, diced tomatoes and a mild salsa on a platter to let the kids make their own creations. Your young diners will be even more likely to clear their plates and ask mum and dad for a return visit.



5. Plant-Based Meatballs 

Edgell Plant-Based Meatballs, are the ultimate crowd-pleaser.

Made from a medley of delicious plant-based ingredients, these meatballs are high in protein. Consider pairing them with a generous serving of al-dente pasta and a rich tomato sauce. This classic spaghetti and meatballs dish can cater to both vegan and vegetarian diners, ensuring your restaurant will become a go-to choice for families with a range of dietary preferences.
