Spur is launching a new “better-for-you” kiddies menu in December as part of their plan to provide parents with healthier food options for their kids. We were invited with other media houses to taste the new menu and we had to rate each meal.

Below are the results:

  • Chicken avo wrap with sweet potato fries
  • Grilled chicken strips and corn on the cob
  • Chicken frank and mash
  • TIE! Chicken and broccoli bake and cottage pie

Pierre van Tonder, Spur CEO, explains the motivation for the proposed menu improvements: “We take the responsibility for the well-being of the families who eat with us very seriously, from menu ingredients to food preparation to restaurant cleanliness. We have already made several changes in our shift towards an improved healthier menu by offering ‘better-for-you’ meal options.”

He also added that they have decreased the salt content in the food; “We are also decreasing the salt content of the food we serve I am proud to say 98% of the products on our menu are hormone and MSG-free. It really is important to us that customers know exactly what they, and their kids, are eating and drinking. So at no additional cost, we give our customers the opportunity to improve their food and beverage habits by swapping, for example, chips and potato smileys for ‘better-for-you’ options such as salad or veggies and milk instead of fizzy drinks.”

The media were not the only judges, a panel of kids from the ages of 5 to 11 were invited to taste the food and give their opinions, and it is their opinions that have made it possible for Spur's "better-for-you" new kiddies menu to be launched at selected Spur Steak ranches in December 2015
