  • They pick from the menu, but normally stick to the same two to three entrees. We sometimes let my nine year old order from the adult menu as he really likes steak and whitefish.

  • They like variety for the most part, it just depends on the restaurant. The only thing coming to mind is chinese food - it has to be sweet and sour pork with chow mein.

  • It depends on the restaurant. My daughter stopped ordering from the kids menu when she was around four...

  • I let my the older one pick what he wants off the menu. The little one gets a little bit of what i'm having all cut up.

  • There isn't a whole lot of variety....chicken fingers or cheeseburgers mainly. It's pretty boring but makes him happy!

  • It's very rare when we eat out, but the times we do we let the children choose their own meals and they sometimes pick something similar to their siblings however I find that it's not common all four children pick the exact same thing; they like variety and choices.
