How do your kids eat?

April Cannon


My friend and I (Stacey) were talking one day about taking our kids out to eat to 1. Get us out 2. Teach them how to behave in restaurants 3. Expose our kids to different cooking and 4. Obviously Eat! Well our kids are polar opposites when it comes to eating - mine are picky and/ or will not eat when in public ( too excited), Hers- although they are pint size and smaller have the appetites of hobbits (for those not familiar with the lord of the rings - although they are small, they eat as much as an adult eats - several times a day!).

So our thoughts were to find local restaurants where kids eat free or reduced ( for mine I will not be wasting money on food if not eaten, for hers - they will - maybe - get their bellies filled). Well my friend started compiling a list based on social media recommendations and research on her own! It is extensive and she gave it to me. I included links to all restaurants and we have decided to share it with all moms, so we can all benefit! If there is any we do not have on the list - please feel free to comment on what we may not have on here! Enjoy and eat well!

1. IHOP in Rock Hill - Mon - Thurs kids eat free with $5 + adult meal.  I would call ahead because sometimes they limit the dates this deal is available.

2. Red Bowl Asian Bistro - Stockbridge Dr. Fort Mill - Kids eat for 99Cents with adult meal purchase on Mondays.
