Fairmont Hotels has created a menu suitable for people with diabetes
Navigating a menu when eating abroad can be a tricky task for those with diabetes or other conditions with specific dietary requirements.
Now one hotel chain has developed a menu specially designed for holidaymakers with strict dietary needs. Fairmont's Lifestyle Cuisine Plus was created for those with conditions such as diabetes and heart disease.
Although eating the right foods for your condition while abroad is a positive step, people with diabetes and other health problems should still take out
medical travel insurance to provide cover for any unforeseen circumstances.
Lunchtime at the Fairmont Orchid on Hawaii's Kohala Coast sees a comprehensive array of healthy meals, each catering for diet-specific holidaymakers.
The menu includes healthy snacks such as brown rice and baby greens, gluten-free mango summer rolls with peanut dipping sauce, and salmon, brown rice risotto and Swiss chard, a dish put together with the diabetic in mind.
Stephen Miller, director of catering and conference services at the Fairmont Orchid, said: ""We typically see 5% of attendees requesting a special meal, and these days those requests are for more than just a vegetarian plate.
"We have a great variety of dishes for each type of diet, so the delegate doesn't feel they are eating the same thing every day."
