Hungry Horse – Children’s Nutritional Information
We know how important it is to make healthy and informed meal choices where little ones are concerned, so here is where you can find our full nutritional information for our Kids’ Menu.
Hungry Horse is part of the Greene King family. As a leading pub retailer, Greene King endeavours to deliver the highest quality food offer to our guests. This means that we only source our products from a supplier base of fully accredited and quality assured manufacturers.
We continue to review the nutritional profile of our products and have made positive steps towards implementing healthier menu changes through product reformulations and menu development.
Whilst you can find our key nutritional statements and commitments on our menus, to ensure full visibility we have listed some additional information below.
Peas Please Pledge
We’re committed to continuous progress when it comes to including more veg on the plate in our kids’ meals. We are working with The Food Foundation to support their Peas Please pledge. We want to encourage little ones to eat more veg daily, which is why our children’s main meals include at least two portions of veg.

Meal sizes for all
As a responsible food provider, we appreciate that some of our customers require larger portion sizes, so we have built our Kids’ Menu for both smaller and larger appetites. A number of our dishes also have pick and mix options for you to create your own way.
We care about where our ingredients come from and give top priority to sourcing our food ingredients responsibly. This means the potatoes we use for our chips plus our garden peas are British, our salad leaves are UK grown during the British growing season and our beef is 100% British or Irish.
Our suppliers are committed to working towards 100% deforestation and conversion free soya sourcing by 2025. Our farms comply with GLOBALG.A.P standards and commit to 100% deforestation and conversion free sourcing.
