Children travelling overseas from Sydney during the school holidays are in for a tasty (and healthy) treat as Qantas trials a new ‘Kids Quisine’ pop-up buffet.

Arriving a the airline’s Sydney International Business Lounge on 21 July, the food station is specifically designed to meet the palate of the next generation of frequent flyers by serving a range of kid-friendly snacks.

Delicious snacks youngsters can enjoy pre-flight include a DIY-design cupcake and muffin where they can decorate their treat with various toppings. There’s also fruit skewers, veggie jars, pinwheel sandwiches, kid-sized cold-pressed juice, gluten-free pasta, cheese or sausage rolls and kangaroo-shaped fairy bread.


Mmmm, the adults are going to be so envious.

As the first-of-its-kind pop-up for the carrier, Qantas said should it prove to be successful, the airline will consider extending the food station to other lounges during the October school holidays.

Helen Gray, Qantas Head of Food and Beverage, said school holidays are an exciting time for young flyers and the Kids Quisine pop-up is designed to make their journey even more fun.


“We want the lounge experience to be as enjoyable for children as it is for their parents so a dedicated kids’ food station will help get their holidays off to an exciting start.”
