Marmalade was one of the first restaurants to realise that healthy eating for kids wasn’t just a trend and have always stayed true to their menu. Here healthy dishes take the guise of good old fashioned comfort food. Kids are either adventurous eaters or they stick to the familiar, so dishes like the Fish Bites, Mac & Cheese and the failsafe Spaghetti Bolognese (all with hidden vegetables) are sure winners.
Each of the nine mains on the kids’ menu is accompanied with a glass of fresh orange juice, milk or a babycino, and a scoop of vanilla ice cream. This multiaward winning restaurant lauded for its healthy eats and vegetarian options is cute, cosy and a joy to bring the family to. Slide into one of Marmalade’s booths and enjoy some quiet time while keeping an eye on your kids as they rummage through the toy box in the play area. Marmalade is also accommodating to fussy eaters – our kid didn’t fancy yoghurt in his smoothie and the server was quick to oblige.
