I often order my meal around what I know my DD who is 20 months will eat and share.
If we so happen to order her a kids meal depending on where we are, I go for the kids roast option if we are at a local pub or the fish and chips and ask for it to be grilled

TBH I've rarely encountered frozen nuggets or frozen pizza. Usually it's home made chicken breast pieces crumbed or a small version of their own pizza.

We've just started ordering for our 3 1/2 year old (previously, she just nibbled at our plates as she's never been a big eater). It's hit and miss as to how much she eats.
I don't mind ordering from the kids menu (fish or nuggets and chips or pasta), otherwise she gets an entrée serve of something (usually salt & pepper squid).
If it's Chinese, we order lots of share plates so she just eats a variety.
If it's Italian, she shares some pizza and pasta.

If think they will eat a whole meal I do order something. I have no problems giving them something of my plate. I can never eat a whole meal anyway.
I don't care what the waiter thinks of my choice of food of or my parenting style. After all he has no clue about my kids eating issues or sensory issues and I don't plan on embracing my child by telling them. If they ask I simply ignore it and carry on with my order or simply say thank you that all we need and get on with enjoying my meal or family time.

At the pub we often go to her favourite meal is the salt and pepper squid. It's still deep fried, but it's freshly made and has lots of flavour. She's had an entree size of that since she was around 12 months old.

No. In my experience kids meals are expensive and often way too much for my kids to eat. It seems so wasteful. Also, it is always the same: chicken nuggets, fish and chips, banger's and mash etc. I order them an entree and share mine if they like it.

As as I said in my previous post, I've rarely been anywhere that's served frozen, reheated food, yuck! (Unless it's a birthday party!)
My favourite place makes homemade popcorn chicken with real chicken and hand cut chips, so "nuggets and chips" but fresher. Also they make fresh pizza for kids, just a smaller version.
And another place makes mini chicken schnizel pieces.
Maybe we have it nicer in Melbourne!
I agree that the options are boring, but if my kids don't eat it at home, it's interesting for them.
