    I don't know if this would be popular but I take "peas and cheese" as a snack in a container sometimes when we go out. The cheese is mozzarella and cut into squares and the peas are added frozen. They're thawed out and the right temp by the time they're eaten. Our boy is two. He also likes to squash peas into the gaps in sliced black olives. And sometimes I add slices of apple to make a smiley face on his plate. Makes for fun finger food.

    ETA isn't there a thread on here somewhere that shows what kids are eating?

    Definitely a kids size portion of the full adult menu with the same quality.

    So many times dd1 or dd2 would prefer the adult menu.

    Totally agree with this!

    Non Messy finger foods would be my preference for my 3. I wouldn't choose a pasta covered in sauce for my little ones as they just make too much mess, which I think is why nuggets and chips are so popular, they eat and dip and make less mess than they would with very saucy foods that fall apart. So some healthier versions of non messy finger foods is what I would choose from a kids menu if available.

    This. I've only ever been to one restaurant that had no kids menu but offered to to do a mini version of whatever he wanted on the regular menu. We thought it was great, so did DS, he had a mini steak with mash and veg. I never order kids meals normally as they are rubbish nuggets etc and there's rarely a vegetarian option. DS often shares with me plus some extra chips, veg or salad.

    The Jamie Oliver Italian restaurants have an awesome kids menu with activities and colouring in.

    Mini versions of adult menu. My DD is 14 months but since 9months she's just had bits of whatever we are eating cause it's always much better than what kids menus offer.

    I often ask for a half/entree version of a meal at 50% of the price & most places are happy to do it.

    This! Why do kids need their own menu? My children eat what ever we are having at home and I prefer the same when we go out.
