Monday 25 July- Friday 2 September

Just in time for the holidays, Banyan have launched a brand new children’s menu. From Banana Pancakes for breakfast to the mini Banyan Cheeseburger – perfect for lunch or an evening meal. You’ll even find some great new vegetarian and vegan options like the tasty ‘Meat’balls and Pasta made with vegan meatballs.

We all know that it can be hard to persuade little ones to eat the good stuff so Banyan have cleverly hidden the veggies in some of the dishes – anything to make meal time that little bit easier. Try the Mac and Cheese with hidden Butternut Squash or the super Rocket lollies made with fruit and veg (but you’d never know).

Who said children’s food need to be bland? We know that some little taste buds like big flavours so they might enjoy the Chicken curry, packed with vegetables and served with a chapati.

For the extra hungry or the older children, why not super size the normal child’s portion to a bigger dish?

And it gets better, kids can try a main and side from the new menu for free, every Monday to Friday until 6pm, throughout the summer holidays with every full paying adult! Available at Banyan Roundhay, Ilkley, Horsforth, Harrogate and Leeds City Square.
