Welcome to the world of healthy options made just for kids. Bean Sprouts is a forward-thinking cafe that is now inside the Discovery Cube OC (and LA). During a day of enjoying the Discovery Cube - families can stop at Bean Sprouts to fill up on fun and healthy foods for kids and adults.
Kids are treated like important people who can make decisions at Bean Sprouts - and parents can relax knowing that the choices that are offered are healthy. A low counter with a picture menu just for kids makes it easy to see what they want and pick it out. Options are typical - such as a PB & J sandwich - only it is sunflower butter and organic jam on bread cut into piano key shapes. Clever! Kids could pick a flower sandwich (turkey, cheddar, veggies on whole wheat) or a grilled cheese in the shape of a butterfly. In talking with the founders of Bean Sprouts - they said that parents are often surprised when their kids pick "Crocamole" (avocado hummus) or "Bug Bites" (chicken pesto quinoa salad in red peppers) thinking that their kids won't like it - but they do! And it's healthy! The kids menu items are served with applesauce. There are lots of adult sandwich options that also look delicious - and healthy too.
I like the philosophy of Bean Sprouts - aiming for healthy food that kids will have fun with and enjoy!
Disclosure: I experienced a sampling of food during a media preview of the expansion of the Discovery Cube OC. I was not asked to talk about a certain perspective and all opinions are my own.
