I love going to restaurants with my family on the weekends. But I don’t like is paying for kid’s meals kids’ meals are expensive and the portions are very small. My son may not even finish his plate. Luckily, there are restaurants that offer kids free meals. But there are a few things you need to know.
Before you order, confirm that the restaurant offers free meals for kids and that your kids qualify. You can even call ahead to confirm to avoid last-minute surprises.
Common requirements for free kid’s Meal
Here are a few common requirements for free kid’s meals at restaurants
- Restaurants have age restrictions for kids to qualify for free meals. This is loosely enforced but you can’t claim your 10-year-old is only three.
- Most offers require the purchase of an adult entree.
- You can only order a limited number of items for kids (usually from the kid’s menu)
- Beverages for kids are usually not included
