Learn more about writing a restaurant menu with our complete guide.
As a parent, you know that finding a restaurant that offers a good meal for your kids can be tricky. And if you’re like most parents, you don’t want to have to deal with the hassle of cooking yourself when you could be out enjoying a night out on the town. But how do you make sure your child is getting a healthy meal without sacrificing your own enjoyment of the evening?
It may seem like an impossible task, but it can be done. All you need are some tips for creating kid’s menus in restaurants. Keep reading to learn more.
Keep It Simple
– As the saying goes, “less is more”. Kids usually have short attention spans and can get overwhelmed by too many choices. Stick with basic dishes that kids will recognize, like chicken fingers or macaroni and cheese. Avoid elaborate menu items such as lobster ravioli or roasted duckling.
Offer A Variety Of Choices
– While you don’t want to overwhelm your customers, you do want to give them options. If a restaurant offers only one type of kid’s meal (say, hamburgers), parents may decide it’s not worth their while to stay at the restaurant if their child isn’t interested in that particular meal. Offering several types of meals (burgers, hot dogs, chicken fingers etc.) will give parents more options.
Make It Fun
– Kids love it when restaurants make an effort to make their meals fun. Providing interactive toys or activity sheets with the meal can keep kids entertained and happy while they wait for their food to arrive. Other ideas include offering a kid’s “special of the day” or providing coloring placemats and crayons.
: Creating kid-friendly menus doesn’t have to be difficult. By following these tips, you can ensure that your restaurant is attractive to families with children and provide them with a great experience every time they visit. Parents will appreciate the extra effort, and your business will benefit in the long run.
