No, DS who is almost 2 is a bit of a hit or miss at dinner time and I don't feel like wasting $10 for something that may not get eaten and it's usually crap. We usually order for ourselves and share with DS. In saying that we don't really go out that often for dinner anyways, but of a nightmare!

Not usually for DD2 (20mths), DD1 (9) orders from the menu. Sometimes it's a kids meal, sometimes it's not. DD2 just shares what we're having or I'll order her a side dish, she's not the greatest eater though.

We rarely go out for dinner with the kids (a bit expensive with all 5 kids). If we do it depends where we are as to whether we order kids menu. DD is a really good eater so we do have to order her something, just depends what's on the menu. She eats whatever we eat at dinner time (she's nearly 3) so it's more about working out the best size meal for her.

One of our local clubs has "buy an adult meal and get two free kids meals" on Fridays. It's awesome! But, all the same junk on the menu

We order the fried crap food for DS bc he is only 19 months and will throw vegies overboard and I don't fancy that sort of cleanup in a restaurant. I save the healthy stuff for home. When he gets older and has better table manners he can share our meals/have an entree etc. There's a 'healthy' burger place we went to near home recently that had a burger, chips, juice, colour in pad and pencils. It was awesome - we got to enjoy our food in peace for once!

My dd is 22 months and we usually order her an entree. I hate the way that kids meals are always fried crap.

Always, if there isn't anything suitable on the kids menu I'll order them something off the rest of the menu or an entree. Occasionally, where I know the meals are big i'll order one meal for them to share.
They are 2 & 4, and generally they eat most of it. We eat out appx. Twice a week and I have found the quality & variety of the kids menu to be getting better, if not, like I said i just order off the normal menu.

Depends on where it is and what's on the menu. We often eat at Asian places so they don't have a kids' menu - but we will get an extra small dish or entree and then share. I'm not opposed to him having the occasional meal of fish and chips or nuggets though, if those were the most suitable options wherever we were.
