Press release   •   Apr 12, 2013 12:00 BST

World-famous chef Jamie Oliver and Scandic present an even more fun Kids menu with new dishes like Jamie’s BBQ Chicken, plus Scandic’s youngest guests can still build their own pizza. The menu will be served at all 156 Scandic hotels across the Nordic region, starting on 24 June.

"I want to stimulate kids’ interest and curiosity when it comes to food and at the same time serve a nutritious menu using great ingredients,” explains Jamie Oliver. “I hope the new dishes will be enjoyed by guests young and old. It’s cool and exciting every time I get to develop new dishes with the great people at Scandic."

Scandic has invested extensively in giving children extra attention and making them feel welcome. Staying at a hotel should be an adventure for children and Scandic’s playful and inventive hedgehog Sigge is on hand to make sure that happens. All the hotels also offer playrooms where children can enjoy drawing and games. In this context, Jamie’s new Kids menu is yet another example of Scandic’s commitment to its younger guests.

“The idea is simple – children should be able to eat good, healthy food and feel free to play at our hotels. Our partnership with Jamie Oliver has been extremely successful and I’m proud to present some great new dishes on the Kids menu,” says Ulrika Garbrant, VP Food & Beverage at Scandic.

The partnership with Jamie Oliver has been running since 2009, allowing Scandic’s guests to enjoy specially composed dishes that make best use of seasonal produce. Together with Scandic’s Food & Beverage team, Jamie has developed some hugely popular creations, such as Scandic’s exciting Kids menu, inspiring seasonal menus and energising refreshments and lunch dishes for our meeting and conference guests. Now comes an exciting new Kids menu.
