When you have kids, eating out while you’re traveling can be tricky, especially when you want to try something beyond fast food or pizza. And if your children have food sensitivities, you might even need to bring your own food, which can be quite a hassle.
With four kids and dietary restrictions, eating out has always been one of the biggest stressors when my family travels. Not to mention that finding food the kids can and will eat are two different things. Often it ends up being the same old food, like a burger without the bun, and that gets boring quickly.
That’s why I was very happy to hear that one hotel/resort company has thought of this important, but often overlooked detail of family travel – offering kid-friendly food that goes beyond the usual offerings.
Omni Hotels & Resorts recently introduced a new kids menu, called Culinary Kids, that caters to kids 12 and younger. As part of their culinary series, Omni Originals, this menu features fun, creative dishes kids will love, like the colorful Acai Yogurt Bowl recipe found in this post.
What is Omni Originals? The Omni Originals series features themed food and beverages throughout the year, including regional culinary dishes, trendy food, and more delicious surprises for guests. That ‘beyond-the-box’ approach is continued with Culinary Kids.
Some Culinary Kids menu options include:
- Jenga (french toast sticks, maple syrup, chocolate sauce, strawberries)
- Pancake Parfait Tacos (pancakes, yogurt, strawberries, granola, apples, local honey)
- The Garden (edible dirt – bread crumbs, herbs, celery, carrots, leaves, avocado ranch)
- Hen House Fried Chicken on a Stick (grilled or fried chicken, fruit cocktail or french fries served with barbecue, honey mustard, or avocado ranch)
- Bag ‘o donuts (choice of dips and drips: cinnamon sugar, butterscotch, chocolate)
- Rainbow Acai Yogurt Bowl (acai base, seasonal fruit, granola, local honey) see the full recipe below!
- and more
I love how Omni Hotels & Resorts has livened up the common foods kids love. Plus, there are fun options for kids with food sensitivities too, like the Hen House Chicken on a Stick, which can be made grilled as a gluten-sensitive option.
If you think of most kid-friendly hotel restaurants as having boring food, now, thanks to Omni Hotels & Resorts, there are tasty options available for you and your family.

Rainbow Acai Fruit and Yogurt Bowl
Yogurt bowl recipes are a delicious way to make a quick and easy breakfast, lunch, or snack for the kids or yourself. For example, my Coconut & Mango Yogurt Bowl recipe; it’s one of my favorite easy lunch ideas and perfect for a busy day.
Kids love yogurt bowls too. This particular fruit and yogurt bowl contains a variety of fruit that offers great nutritional benefits, plus the calcium and protein that are usually found in yogurt.
Here’s another fun thing about this easy yogurt breakfast recipe: it’s so easy, the kids can make their own! Let them add the fruit and granola toppings and they’ll have fun!
To make this acai yogurt bowl recipe, you’ll need:
acai yogurt (or plain or vanilla yogurt mixed with frozen acai puree), blueberries, banana, strawberry, seasonal fruit, kiwi, local honey, and granola.
If you can’t find acai yogurt, get plain or vanilla yogurt and mix in frozen acai puree (you’ll need to let it thaw first).
Need a dairy-free option? Choose almond milk, cashew milk, or another dairy-free vanilla yogurt.
Start by scooping the yogurt into a bowl, then top with strawberries…
Lastly, drizzle a little honey over the top.
If your kids are helping, you should probably do this step yourself otherwise it may get a little sticky.
I prefer to use local raw honey for even more nutritional benefits. Raw honey can be great for helping with seasonal allergies and this recipe is an easy way to include it. (remember: do not give honey to babies or infants under the age of 1.)
Serve your Rainbow Acai Yogurt Bowl right away and enjoy.
