Wendy's Introduces Creative Play Platform, Honest Kids Organic Fruit Juice Drinks to Kids' Meal

DUBLIN, Ohio - Sept. 28, 2015 // PRNewswire // - Setting a new tone in the quick-service restaurant space, Wendy's® is shifting focus from licensed products to simple, creative play with the introduction of a new Kids' Meal play platform. In addition, Wendy's is offering parents a new beverage option for their children by introducing an Honest® Kids brand organic fruit juice drink to the Kids' Meal.

"Dave Thomas founded Wendy's as a restaurant for families to enjoy meals together. We stay true to our founding values by continuing to look for ways to promote quality family moments through our food and restaurant experience," said Liz Geraghty, Wendy's VP of brand marketing. "In an era where creativity is widely acknowledged to be a skill required for success, our new creative play platform gives parents simple activities to nurture and develop their kids' creativity that families can enjoy together."

This fall, Wendy's Kids' Meals will feature classic games that many parents will recognize, including a four-square game, capture-the-flag, kick-the-can, tag, and playground chalk. These playground games will be followed up throughout the year with more fun and interactive activities.

In addition, Wendy's will be offering Honest Kids' six fl. oz. Super Fruit Punch Organic Juice Drink in its Kids' Meal. The beverage, which will be offered exclusively at Wendy's* until March 1, contains 30% juice and ½ the sugar when compared with other juice drinks.**

"We are thrilled to further our partnership with Wendy's and extend the reach of our great-tasting, organic beverages to this thoughtful and health-driven generation of parents and their children," said Honest Tea co-founder and TeaEO Seth Goldman.
