wordpress menu order

Posted on 2013-06-11

I have the following code and I was wondering if it was possible to order by menu_order instead of alphabetically.

			if ($pages_data) {
			$item_output .= '<div class="drop"><div class="holder"><ul>';
			foreach($pages_data as $page){ 
				$item_output .= '<li class="" id="menu-item-'.$page->ID.'"><a href="'.get_permalink($page->ID).'">'.$page->post_title.'</a></li>';
			$item_output .= '</ul></div></div>';
