Ever since Lulu started eating real food, our eating out budget has disappeared quicker than usual AND sometimes I get so disappointed because she doesn’t end up eating what we order and then if she doesn’t eat it the next day either, it goes to waste. That is, until we discovered kids eat free nights! Here is a list that I’ll be adding to as we discover new places or as you make recommendations.
As with everything, please call ahead to verify that information is still correct. Most deals below require one adult entree purchase per free kids meal. IWK is not responsible for any unexpected costs. Have fun and yum yum!!
