DIna,
That's not much of a selection. She could eat from the parents plate too, right?

My kids normally eat from the adult menu and often select the appetizer size of the main course. My youngest daughter loves having what we're having and isn't a big french fry, hot dog, etc. eater. In our experience the waiters and waitresses have always been outstanding at catering to the smaller appetites at our table and the kids have always been pleased. Sometimes she even selects three or four of the appetizers and the salad and skips right past the main course, the waiters have all been wise and everytime she finished a plate, they dropped another one in front of her enabling us all to enjoy our meals while she discovered what was on her plate. For her it was like the buffet but delivered right to her while she was in her "dress up clothes".

Thank you, when the little ones are happy everyone is happy! We are going with a group of around 55 people and we have two toddlers going and two grade school age. I'm sure with the great wait staff and their entertainment at dinner they should be okay.

Yep.. Should keep the kidlins happy being able to eat adult dishs. I just know a lot of kids who won't eat what ever is put in front of them. That's why they have the fall back kids menu.

Other than the fruit where is the healthy food? Nothing on this menu is good for kids (or adults for that matter). You would think there would be alternative menu...

We have noticed the addition to the regular menu of fried chicken and burgers. Even though the children's menu did not list it, we were also able to order mac and cheese for our granddaughter who is very picky. The one who is not picky, ordered off the adult menu and ate everything we ate - and loved it.

As far as the children's menu of chicken nuggets, fries, dogs, etc., it is sad to say that most children are now fed this way regularly and from fast food restaurants.

Thanks, I think she will do fine. She will fill up on the bread they serve as soon as you sit down.
