My DD is 3.5 and we have been ordering kids meals for her since she was about 3. She will eat a lot of the salad/veg bar if we go to a pub so feel bad if we don't purchase a meal for her. Often we all have a bit of each other's and I'll have her soft drink as she only really drinks water. She usually has a few mouthfuls of the icecream. Tbh if there is no drink or dessert with it, we usually just order something we can share off our plates.
