Tomato, fresh cheese and frankfurter pizza; Barilla mini-penne with cream, peas and ham; crescenza cheese with battered slices of carrot; legumotti in tomato sauce with tuna, olives and mozzarella cheese; 5-grain fusilli pasta with vegetable carbonara are just a few of the new offerings, said Costa.

Younger guest dining with the children’s club (Squok Club) will receive a package containing 10 playing cards, illustrated by Italian cartoonist Fogliazza, with colorful and original characters representing the five colors of fruits and vegetables, Costa said.

Children can collect and exchange all the cards (from a total of 85) with each other and continue the game once they get back home.

“This makes fruits and vegetables part of children’s lives through play and fun, increasing their awareness about the importance of a healthy diet, even on vacation,” Costa said.
