Tim Hortons launches kids menu

New menu offers meal options with no artificial colours or flavours, a full serving of fruit and no added sugar

Mario ToneguzziIconic Canadian brand Tim Hortons continues to evolve and expand its offerings.

The coffee and food establishment has announced it’s now offering a new Timmies Minis kids menu.

“We asked parents and kids what was most important to them when selecting a kid’s meal and the number one answer for both groups was taste,” said Alex Macedo, president of Tim Hortons, in a statement. “We conducted extensive research on the best taste for any kids meal in Canada and we are very proud that we are launching kids products that moms, dads and kids alike will get excited about.”

The company said the new kids menu offers meal options with no artificial colours or flavours, a full serving of fruit and no added sugar.

Kids and parents can select one of three entrées to build their Timmies Minis meal:

  • Mini Melt, a grilled cheese sandwich;
  • Mini Wrap, seasoned grilled chicken in a soft tortilla;
  • Chicken Strips, two pieces of seasoned, breaded chicken breast served with sweet and sour sauce.

To complement the entrée, kids and parents can choose from apple slices, SunRype FunBites, Black Diamond Cheestrings or snack-sized potato wedges, as a side and white milk, chocolate milk, orange juice, apple juice or a bottle of water as a drink.

Tim Hortons also announced it has partnered with Team Canada hockey player Meaghan Mikkelson to launch the new kids menu.

“Tim Hortons has played a big role in my life growing up. From visits after hockey practice, to meeting up with friends after school, Tim’s was always there. Now, as a busy mom to an active toddler – and soon to be mother of two – the Timmies Minis meals fit very well into our very busy life,” said Mikkelson. “It feels good to introduce Tims to my kids and finally be able to say yes to food that I feel good about and my picky eater does too.”
