Isn’t it time that menus got as healthy

Isn’t it time that menus got as healthy as you are?

Leading the way is Hyatt International with their new “Healthful Kids Menu Items”. The Chicago-based hotel chain’s new initiative, dubbed “Food. Thoughtfully Sourced. Carefully Served,” includes ambitious mandates that take step-by-step shifts toward the use of all-natural meats, cage-free eggs and sustainable seafood throughout roughly 400 foodservice outlets in more than 300 full-service properties worldwide.

It’s a long over due step for the Food and Beverage industry. Consumers are choosing to be informed and make healthy life style choices which includes not only what they eat but where it came from. With the GMO labeling movement it makes one wonder how soon the Food and Beverage industry will be asking for certification of Non GMO. As a parent it makes obvious sense to avoid all foods that could create a negative impact on a child’s growth and development. Virus and DNA altered foods with over zealous pesticide use seem to be a natural to avoid.

Kudos to Hyatt for taking this first step to ensuring the coming generations are healthier and nourished.

About MatchaGT by ShelleRae

Welcome! I am ShelleRae and I am very excited you are here. I joined the Smoothie Essentials team about 5 years ago now. Always health conscious and into prevention versus medication it seemed natural when the opportunity came up to take on the creation of this blog and the Smoothie Essentials blog as well. As mother to three and surrogate to many more I've practiced much of what I write on sometimes with great success and other times with a bit less. My friends and family are my test kitchen and my facts are most often from WebMD - they seem to have a fairly accurate and conservative approach. MatchaGT – the super premium Matcha Green Tea Introducing Matcha GT, the super premium Matcha Green Tea. Matcha GT is nature’s natural source of energy and antioxidants. Used for centuries in Japanese tea ceremonies, Matcha provides a powerful pick-me-up plus antioxidants and other health benefits to keep the body, mind and spirit in perfect balance. While many forms of green tea are strained or brewed, Matcha GT uses the whole tea leaf providing the full benefits and bold taste of whole green tea powder. My inspiration comes from others who also are striving to live a better life through lifestyle changes.
