When did you move from children's to adult menus in restaurants? Were there some restaurants you stayed on children's menus for longer? What are you views on children's menus in general?

Personally, I think I was about 8 when I went off children's menus, mainly because I saw that adults got a different choice and I didn't like feeling separated/looked down on. I think I stayed on different menus for longer at places like Frankie and Bennys because obviously they had an 'in-between' menu for older kids, and I still had Happy Meals because obviously there's no real 'menu' at McDonalds. It did always annoy me though when they served me coke in a kid's cup at Pizza Hut mad.gif Sometimes I don't really see the need for children's menus nowadays when they could just make smaller portions of the adult choices.

They didn't exist when I was a child!

If they just did smaller portions of the same dishes that would also be useful for people like my parents who no longer want a large meal.

I hadn't though of that - yes, that would benefit quite a large demographic!

I think one of the reasons I'm so fat is because of the fact I started very young on the "main meals" in McDonalds. laugh.gif

That and ordering a milkshake and putting extra milk and sugar in. unsure.gif

Speaking of McDonalds, I remember going to McDonalds once specifically to get the Hotwheels inside the Happy Meal (bc I saw it advertised that morning) and discovering they'd changed the toy to Ninja Turtles cry.gif

I switched to adult menus at around age 10 I think. I have been known to get things from the kids menu occasionally in recent times though ph34r.gif I'm so fussy, so on rare occasions at restaurants where there's nothing I like, I resort to the kids menu (as it's not just smaller portions but entirely different food sometimes as well). It feels rly embarrassing though as the staff judge you immensely so this really would be a last resort thing, after seeing if I could just have a starter as a main meal or something

Some of the Happy Meal toys back in the day *.*

That's a really big problem for me and my sister too. When our grandparents take us on a two-day trip somewhere, when they plan to take us to a restaurant, we usually spend ages finding one which serves something we'll eat.

In my defence, it's not so much me or my sister being particularly fussy, it's because restaurants have this weird fascination with putting as many differents foods as possible into a single dish. Because of this there'll usually be something I don't like in there. I should probably try to work on this though.

I moved onto advert menu's at around 10 or 11 as far as I remember! Definitely felt like a massive step in the process of me growing up, haha. I was never one for the stereotypical menu items though, especially at an Italian restaurant when the only kids options were Lasagne or Spaghetti - where's the f****** carbonara at cry.gif x

Must admit though, when I go for a carvery, I still buy a kids plate (as does the whole of my family), you can literally get as much veg as you want regardless and the meat difference is tiny between a kids plate and an adults place so it doesn't make any difference as far as I'm concerned, at least not for me anyway. If you're not a big fan of meat (I get the nut roast btw bc veggie) I'd recommend doing this, saves plenty of over time.
