STAMFORD, CONN—Tiny chefs helped launch the Westin Eat Well Menu for Kids yesterday in New York city, flipping and decorating crepes, and rolling out pasta with the aid of adult SuperChefs.

This event marked the next stage of Westin Hotels & Resorts' year-long Westin Well-Being Movement with the announcement of two new nutrition-focused partnerships with SuperChefs and The Juicery and the newest member of the brand’s Well-Being Council, dietician Ashley Koff, registered dietitian. Koff joins council members Andy Puddicombe, Headspace co-founder and mediation expert, and media mogul Arianna Huffington in guiding and inspiring new initiatives, leveraging proprietary research to inform and introduce new programs throughout the year.
 
As an advocate for wellness and healthy eating, Westin teamed up with SuperChefs, a group of doctors, dentists, dieticians, chefs and other experts dedicated to educating kids on the importance and the fun of eating smart, to create The Westin Eat Well Menu for Kids. The extensive new menu, which has rolled out to properties worldwide, includes eight signature dishes created and tested by kids, receiving a stamp of approval from notoriously finicky eaters. A new, dedicated fresh juice and smoothie offering, Westin Fresh by The Juicery, is currently rolling out to hotels worldwide.  The program was created with leaders in nutrition, featuring juices and smoothies designed for business and leisure travellers seeking healthy options while travelling.
 
“As we continue to roll-out innovative wellness options for our guests as part of the Westin Well-Being Movement, we saw this as a perfect opportunity to introduce two new programs that are carefully customized to help guests continue their healthy eating habits while travelling,” said Brian Povinelli, Global Brand Leader for Westin & Le Méridien Hotels.  “Both SuperChefs and The Juicery have made great strides in making it easier to help maintain a healthier life while promoting the importance of good nutrition.”
