Healthy Eating tops the Menu
Gordons Fast Foods, founded in 1962, are starting to make big changes to their range of fast food meals. There are plans to phase out traditional fast foods such as burgers and fried chicken throughout the 200 plus outlets. In their place customers can purchase sandwiches made on the premises along with fresh salads, fruit, and vegetables. Even porridge and yogurt are available for breakfast, while lunchtime customers can enjoy pitta bread filled with chicken and roasted vegetables. The biggest menu changes are found in the children’s meals. Gordons are launching an £8 million advertising campaign to promote healthy eating. The 3 months’ campaign aims to persuade parents that Gordons care about children’s good health. The number of meal combinations for children has doubled from 54 to 108. As fried food is phased out, in come the grilled and fresh alternatives. To fill their plate children can choose fresh salad, fruit, or a jelly made with fresh fruit juice. These changes to the menu have cost an estimated £2 million and Gordons are spending an extra £3.5 million to encourage a balanced and active lifestyle. It all sounds very good, but is it really possible to get balanced meals in a fast food outlet? Food experts say they welcome the changes but they think that many of the new meals still contain too much salt and not enough calories. Anna Kowalski, who is an independent food expert, reported that many children will still be hungry because the new meals are not filling enough. This leads children to ask for crisps or chocolate. Ms Kowalski says parents should still cook regularly at home with their children. Fast food meals should only be eaten occasionally and should never be given as a treat. Rewards should be a visit to the park to play on the swings and to enjoy an ice cream.
