    Universal's U.S. Theme Parks Create Healthy Options for Guests

    Both Adults and Children Get Healthy Meal Choices

    ORLANDO, Fla. and UNIVERSAL CITY, Calif., Dec. 20 /PRNewswire/ -- Beginning December 24, adults and children will find a healthier approach to eating at Universal's U.S. theme parks. Healthy side dishes and trans-fat- free foods will be widely available throughout all the theme parks.

    Universal's theme parks will now offer healthy side choices for both adults and children at most of its food units. Kid's meals come with a choice of fruit or trans-fat-free fries and adults will be able to select from either a side salad or trans-fat-free fries. Healthy beverage choices are also available at many locations throughout the parks.

    Universal Orlando's Islands of Adventure and Universal Studios theme parks and Universal Studios Hollywood will also begin cooking and frying with 100 percent trans-fat-free oil throughout most of their facilities. Universal will also work to make nutritional information about its foods available to guests, and is targeting the end of 2007 to be entirely trans-fat free for all its food offerings.

    "Providing our guests healthier options and trans-fat-free cooking is the right thing to do," said Universal Parks & Resorts executive chef Steven Jayson. "We want our guests to feel good about the food they eat when they visit our theme parks. And we know choice is important to them. That's why our program is about choices rather than absolutes."

    Universal has spent months searching for the right ingredients, testing foods and recipes and getting guest feedback on its new program
    "We did not want to sacrifice taste or quality," Jayson said. "It's important for our guests to know that healthy food can taste good."

    Information related to these healthy options can be found on park map guides and at the company websites.

    Universal Parks & Resorts (Universal) ( consists of four worldwide entertainment destinations with five dramatically distinct theme parks, including Universal Orlando Resort, Universal Studios Hollywood, Universal Studios Japan and PortAventura.

    Thanks for the article.

    When we took the VIP Tour last w/e, our Tour Guide spoke of a few of the upcoming changes to the Park, and a healthier food choice was one of the subjects mentioned.

        Three-time MVP Larry Bird, noting that Bryant has been the NBA's premier player for years, told Sports Illustrated's Dan Patrick before this week's announcement, "When someone told me the other day that Kobe hadn't won an MVP trophy, it sort of made me feel like I wanted to throw mine away."
