Eat Healthy, Grow Strong: Kids Eat Free in Los Angeles!
Eating healthy and sticking to a budget can be difficult. But families shouldn’t have to feel they are stuck at home for every meal when there are many, many Los Angeles restaurants that offer FREE kids meals. Going out for a meal should be a fun, relaxing and healthy time for families — and feeding kids for free can help make that happen.
Be aware, though, that many of the “kids” meals may not be the healthiest. Healthy food choices begin with you. While occasional treats of French fries and macaroni and cheese are okay, be sure to try healthier options if they are available: grilled chicken and other meats; salad, veggies or fruit as an alternative to chips or fries and pasta with red sauce instead of macaroni and cheese.
Some of the restaurants included are IHOP, Marie Callender’s, Denny’s, El Torito, Coco’s, Ruby’s and Islands. Watch the fine print for restrictions, ages and how many adult meals, if any, need to be purchased to get the kids’ meals free.
