And the problem is...?

Sorry, but I'm not seeing the issue here.

I weep for humanity if grilled steak, carved chicken sandwich and pulled pork on a children's menu are considered bad things.

I agree with you 100%....

however, if NYC can govern your health, and soda intake, why not WDW?

The menu is crazy for kids. I understand a break from the standard chicken nuggets and mac n cheese....but how about something they will eat??

I'm sure this "adult fare" kids menu idea sounded great in the staff meetings.

Of course, I give them about a week, and the chicken nuggets a hot dogs will magically appear
(even if they are not featured on the menu.)

It's a long-standing Disney policy to make the dining guests happy.


Also, someone should have told the "food stylist" at the photo shoot that they
should make the menu items look more like "Disney fun"
and not like skimpy "nouvelle cuisine."

And I would imagine that, like Disney has done for years, if a child cannot find a single thing on that menu that they will eat, the kitchen will be happy to prepare them some plain pasta or a PB&J or chicken breast or whatever.

Disney gets blasted for only offering "kid food" to kids and for not having enough variety for kids' more adventurous palates. Now they present something that is a little bit outside the box, and they get blasted because food that no one has tasted yet is unpalatable?

I hope not - chicken nuggets and hot dogs should come with a premium price, to pay for the health related issues these kids have from eating crap all the time.

The thing is the items on that menu are not weird. Maybe the only thing truly different is the mahi mahi.

However, there is chicken breast on there as well as steak. I think there are huge problems if a kid can't or won't even eat that.

Maybe.
But, they LOOK weird.
Very difficult to overcome.

My grandson will be just fine with these meals. There is plenty there he will eat. He won't eat the steak. He loves veggies and fruits and can make a meal out of just that

I don't see anything wrong with it...
It's a sad world if kids won't eat anything but chicken tenders, hotdogs and fries.

I have a child that is very particular about what she eats and she would definitely go for a few of those choices. She might not like every item on the plate but she'd certainly fill her belly. I think it's great that they're exposing kids to real food instead of the usual kiddies garbage.

I have to ask, if none of that food appeals to your kids, what on earth are you feeding them at home for dinner? All of that stuff is on our rotation here at home, and any child that eats dinner in my home (nieces, nephews, friends' kids) all eat whatever the grown-ups are eating without complaint. My nephew's (age 2) favorite food is a spinach, feta and egg white wrap in a spinach tortilla.
