No kids food at a wedding?

We received the invite to my bil's wedding a few weeks ago. There are some kids invited but not many apparently. My son is and he's 5.

His fiancée was over this weekend and had just talked to the caterer. She showed us the menu and it was beef tenderloin, mushroom risotto, roasted squash, asparagus and some other random veggies. Appetizers are all fancy things, lots of fish.

My son won't eat any of it. He's a picky eater and he won't. He's gonna be in family pics all day so he's not gonna have time to eat...

I asked if there's a kids menu. She looked at me like I have 4 heads and said no. I suggested they order some kids stuff and she just kinda laughed and said no I don't think so.

Who the hell invites kids to a wedding and doesn't feed them shit they'll eat???

Holy cow you are being ridiculous and entitled.  The kids should be just fine with what is served.

So, pack some peanut butter crackers or some shit, this is not neonatal bowel surgery.

I've never understood the concept of "kids food."

My kids ate stuff like that all the time - I never gave them chicken nuggets, or fries, or stuff like that.  They loved veggies of all sorts, beef tenderloin - they would eat that up.

My kids would eat all of that. Pack your kid a sandwich and shut the hell up.

This. You do know that children are humans, just like adults, right....he will eat what is served or he doesn't eat. Stop raising an entitled child.

Um kids can eat that. Mine would love it. Can't believe you asked them to change their menu.

I wouldn't expect a wedding to cater to kids, it isn't hard to pack a lunch just in case.
