Delta will soon accommodate the stomachs of its youngest passengers. The airline will add kid-friendly, parent-approved meals to its onboard menu.
Starting April 1, customers can pre-select kid-friendly meals for young fliers.
The meals are well-balanced and include a variety of fruits, vegetables, colors, and textures thanks to Delta chefs, who studied restaurant menus and traditional kids’ meals to update Delta’s menu, the company’s website said.
The breakfast menu includes French toast with syrup, scrambled eggs, an assortment of fruit, and a small blueberry muffin. The lunch and dinner meal is cheese tortellini with marinara sauce and parmesan cheese, carrots and broccoli with ranch dressing, and an assortment of fruit and graham cookies.
Customers can select these meals on flights via special meals starting March 23 for flights flown after April 1. Special meals must be reserved at least 24 hours in advance and are offered on long-haul international flights and most domestic routes for customers traveling in First Class.
The return of kids’ meals is the latest update to Delta’s refreshed onboard food and beverage menu. On January 19, Delta announced the return of its beloved signature Delta One dessert cart that includes plated desserts, fruit and cheese plates, and a build-your-own ice cream sundae.
Customers can also enjoy items like opera cake with chocolate ganache and a vanilla ice cream sundae with a customer’s choice of toppings like whipped cream, cookie crumble, fruit compote, and chocolate chips.
The Delta One dessert cart is available on international flights; options vary depending on the city of departure.
“Your onboard meal and beverage should be no different than your go-to restaurant at home, and that’s why we’re constantly reinventing our onboard service at Delta. We always want to surprise and delight our customers with seasonal, fresh, and fun menu options,” said Kristen Manion Taylor, S.V.P. of In-Flight Service at Delta.
