Food ideas when you plan to go out with your child

One of the biggest changes and challenges that come in our lives after having kids is going out to restaurants. Admit it! We all like to go out every once in a while. But the fun of going to restaurants may not be as much fun with younger kids. And its just not because your kids don’t let you enjoy the food in peace, its also because not every restaurant has a kid-friendly menu or food items in their menu for kids of age 3 years and above. The food is either spicy or not what your kids like. As much as you love your food, your kid also likes to eat food of his choice. If you don’t wish that your child should  eat at the restaurant then you can always carry home cooked food along with you and ask to reheat it when you are there.

Here are some ideas about options are available at different outlets:

Going to a Chinese restaurant


Order non-spicy food items like soups, spring rolls, Singapore noodles, Hakka noodles, fried/plain rice, chop suey.

Going to a Continental restaurant


Order hummus with pita breads/pockets, non-spicy finger foods, couscous, soups, salads, shakes.

Going to an Italian restaurant


Italian restaurants have the most kid friendly food options like pizzas, lasagna, salads, pastas, soups, sandwiches, burgers.

Whichever cuisine or restaurant you choose, always keep in mind to ask for less or non-spicy variant of the food item that you want to order for your child so that he eats without fuss.
