If you are a parent, you have probably had this experience…you go out to a restaurant for a nice meal with the family. Your child insists on the fancy kids meal with a milkshake and dessert and you figure “why not?”. You’re out for a nice evening, everyone should get what they want. His meal comes and he picks at it and says it tastes funny. The milkshake doesn’t look good so he doesn’t even try it, and when dessert arrives, even that isn’t up to par. What a waste of money! If you’re like me, you pack it all up and bring it home, only to throw it away in a few days when it’s clear it isn’t going to be eaten.

That is why I love going to restaurants that offer a kids eat free promotion. Yes, you have to order an adult entree in order to get the free meal, but we were doing that anyway, so it all works out. If all six of us go out together it is perfect…3 entrees, and 3 free meals! Here is quick guide for Canadian parents looking for Kids Eat Free spots.

These may not apply to all restaurants at all locations, so please check with your local spot before heading out!
