    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.

    I know it's not the best kids option and more should be offered, but I'm not sure why people are so disgusted in this option. If you are serving your kids lots of vegetables, fruits and grilled meats every other day, isn't ok for your kids to have a treat of some chips and nuggets on the odd occasion?

    Also if it's a lunch outing, I'll make sure they'll have a bowl of veggie soup that evening for dinner.
    This misses the point. For me it's not so much that I have an issue with DD eating fried foods, it's more that I think if we are paying to go to a restaurant to have quality fresh food served to us, why wouldn't children also be given the same treatment? It's a cop out to just serve reheated or fried crap. I think that so many kid friendly restaurants and cafés could really benefit from upping the ante with the quality of their kids menus. One great example was a recent excursion out to a new breakfast cafe where the kids menu was even more appealing than the regular one!

    We usually order 2 meals between the 3 boys, plus a side of veggies. My DS1 wont eat chips or potato, and they all love veggies but unfortunately kids meals rarely come with veggies which I think is just stupid.

    I think they serve what will make kids happy, not the parents. I'm ok with that. Although my DD likes veggies she will be happier (ergo quieter) with chips and nuggets.

    For the record I have an eater and I've ordered her meals since she was 1. She eats 90% of hers. If I didn't she would eat 80% of mine.

    Only at one cafe, I order him falafels and pita bread and hummus (which I share). Normally he eats off my plate or I bring him food. But he loves his falafel!!!

    Nope, I rarely did when my kids were of that age. The biggest problem we faced is that we are vegetarians and most kids menu's are processed meat with a side of animal fat laden chips/fries.
    I'd often just order them an entree or a dish to share as they got older and ate more.

    Are all of the parents that order from kids menus not active on bubhub or just too worried to reply?

    There are very few of us that have actually said we do. If that's the case in reality, they wouldn't be offering such terrible food... maybe this is just another of those 'only on bh' scenarios

    I do if the child will eat it (not to young or too old, food they like etc..)
    I won't take any rot from waiters like in the op. I know what and when kids eat and I wouldn't be made to feel bad because I chose to share with my child rather than order something they won't eat.

    Most of My kids love frozen nuggets and chips etc... The ones that don't aren't made to eat them.
