Along with Barilla, the University of Parma, and Madegus – Masters of
Costa proposes a program for
children based on a full menu review towards spreading proper nutrition through
play among kids.
Genoa, June 20,
2018 – Costa Cruises confirms its
commitment to revisiting the theme of food
in a sustainable way, presenting a new project dedicated to the youngest guests
of its ships, created in collaboration with Barilla, the University of
Parma and Madegus - Masters of Taste.
The purpose is raising awareness among children on the value of food and
proper nutrition, proposing a new
onboard menu related to a funny and educational game.
The gastronomic offer for children has been entirely modified, according
to the principles of the Mediterranean
diet and food variety. Pasta, fruits and vegetables will be the leading
items of new dishes. This will enable parents on vacation aboard Costa ships to
include, in their children's diet, foods that stimulate the growth of body and
mind, so that they never miss healthy habits, even on vacation.
Children will have seven menu
options available to choose from, each identified by a special name: Red
Planet, Yellow Planet, White Planet, Purple Planet, Green Planet, Hidden
Treasure, and Rainbow. Tomato, fresh cheese and
frankfurter pizza; Barilla mini-penne with cream, peas and ham; crescenza cheese with
battered slices of carrot; legumotti in tomato sauce with tuna, olives and
mozzarella cheese; 5-grain fusilli pasta with vegetable carbonara are just a
few of the delights offered.
Whenever the small guests choose one of seven menu options dedicated to
them in the Main Restaurant or during lunch with the leaders of the Squok Club,
they will receive a package containing 10
playing cards, illustrated by the famous Italian cartoonist Fogliazza, with colorful and original characters representing
the 5 colors of fruits and vegetables.
Children can collect and exchange all the cards (from a total of 85) with each
other and continue the game once they get back home.
This makes fruits and vegetables part of children's lives through play
and fun, increasing their awareness about the importance of a healthy diet,
even on vacation.
Therefore, Costa becomes the spokesperson for a responsible conduct,
healthy principles and lifestyles through an approach directly involving the
guests onboard and the staff. The desire is that the ships of the fleet will be
experienced as a real home, where sharing exciting experiences and, mostly,
thinking about the future, especially for the younger generations.
