Be­fore choos­ing a fam­ily re­sort, check the min­i­mum-age limit for en­try to the chil­dren’s club. Some al­low tod­dlers as young as two, while oth­ers ac­cept only older chil­dren. ■ Re­sort restau­rants such as Sof­i­tel’s Salt have mod­i­fied menus for chil­dren but many par­ents find Fi­jian cui­sine — a curious melange of is­lan­der fare such as pit-roasted pork and In­dian dishes like tan­doori chicken — per­fectly sat­is­fac­tory for fussy young eaters. Buf­fet break­fasts usu­ally of­fer such a large se­lec­tion, in­clud­ing plenty of fresh fruit, that it’s pos­si­ble to skip lunch. ■ Don’t ex­pect to plonk your chil­dren in front of the television. Fi­jian TV is lim­ited and cable chan­nels such as CNN are of­ten un­avail­able due to satel­lite fail­ures. Take a por­ta­ble DVD player if screen time is a must. El­iz­a­beth Mery­ment
