Places in DFW Where Kids Eat Free

Places in DFW Where Kids Eat Free

When my son was little, we were determined that he would be exposed to every sort of food and that we would order him interesting and healthy things when we went to restaurants. We looked at children’s menus with dismay and ordered for him off the regular menu when possible. And truth be told, he ate just about everything! That is until he was about three years old. After that, he slammed on the breaks and turned into a majorly picky eater. As for my daughter – no matter what we have tried, she just has never eaten much of anything. Peanut butter & jelly sandwiches and macaroni and cheese have kept her alive. When we eat at restaurants, there is about a 50/50 chance that she will not even touch her food. And so, let’s get real. Childen eating at restaurants can be ridiculous. They may eat the food, they may not. It gets expensive, folks. We continue to try to expose them to things, but usually at home where we don’t have to pay for a wasted meal. Thankfully, there are a lot of restaurants out there that can help families save some money when they do want to go out to eat. Here are some places in DFW where kids eat free.
