    Fried rice, stir fry, mild curries, steak and veggies, risotto, fruit and Greek yogurt for dessert. Even just the option of all (or selected) adults meals to come in a kids size portion would be great.

    some great ideas already suggested. One thing my kids would go for is eggs. Boiled with toast, scrambled, poached. We were in Hawaii on holidays and one of the cafes served a little "picky plate" of a boiled egg, carrot sticks, a few sultanas, cheese cubes, grapes and a few crackers. Big time winner with my kids and something we bought a few times.

    actually another café I know off sells a pre packed kids box of 2 little sausage rolls or mini quiche, a water or juice popper, and a side of chopped up fruit. I think it costs about $6.

    I would just like to see "kid" size versions available from the normal menu - I just don't get why kids need different meals? Oh and have turkey or smoked salmon or egg available for sandwiches as most kids sandwiches only offer Ham as a protein

    I would love to go to a cafe that serves kids smoothie/milkshakes that are made just with fruit and milk, without the added sugary syrups or ice-cream.

    Yes this. I hate having to buy my kids a whole serve of adult food (well now I have two so I get them one to share) as it's wasteful but I loathe 'kid's menus' altogether. I wish places would just offer kids size meals off their regular menu. I can see the merit in having one or two dishes that even the fussiest eater will eat (plain old spag bog or fish n chips) because I know that many people order off the kids menu so the adults can eat in peace and not have to worry about what the kids are doing. But apart from that I don't really see the point in making a whole separate menu for kids.

    This. Even slight modifications to facilitate the finger feeders. So chunks of veggies, salads with chunks of tomato, cheese, cucumber. Hopefully that would make life easier in the kitchen rather than sticking separate supplies for the kids menu.

    I'll often give junior some if my meal and order a side salad off the menu and it's disappointing when it's a bowl of leaves with a cherry tomato and a sliver of cucumber. Having a small version of the adult menu would be awesome.

    The nibbling plate would be something I'd probably order.
