"Our menus at both Applebee's and IHOP throughout Canada offer a wide variety of delicious options designed to meet the needs of our guests, and while the choice is always up to our guests, we hope that removing soft drinks from our kids' menus will make it easier for parents to help their children make the best choices for them," said Daniel del Olmo, President, International, DineEquity, Inc.
Beverage items currently featured on the kids' menus include apple juice, orange-tangerine juice, milk and chocolate milk.
As part of the family-friendly brands' ongoing efforts to remain current and responsive to dietary tastes and trends, both IHOP and Applebee's continually evolve their menus to offer guests of all ages a broad range of choices. In addition to seasonal specialty dishes and fresh, made-to-order classics, IHOP restaurants feature a "SIMPLE & FIT" icon to identify those options which might be lighter in calories and Applebee's menus similarly identify those items which are lighter fare.
There are currently 16 Applebee's Grill & Bar restaurants in Canada and 23 IHOP restaurants, with the newest IHOP location in Westlink Park, Edmonton celebrating its grand opening on August 9.
