We are inviting a couple kids (4) under the age of 12, so this would make them able to get a kids meal at our reception venue. Since this only affects 4 families I really don’t want to put “childrens meal” on the RSVP card.
Call the families with kids and ask if they want a kids meal
Put a note in their invitations letting them know kids meals are available.
I’d rather not pay for an adult meal if the kids would rather have chicken fingers than filet!

I would just wait until you get the rsvps, and then order kid’s meals- I don’t see why they need a choice.

Most catering companies won’t serve an adult meal to a child anyway if they know there are children in attendance so that is moot. Since the kids’ meals only apply to a small number of guests, go ahead and order the kids’ meals since you don’t need to verify it with the parents beforehand.

No. If they come, just serve them the kids meal. No need for permission or choices.

You’ll know who the kids are and where they’re sitting. If they come, they get kids meals, period. Under-12 is fine for a kids meal only option for the four of them (if you were talking about like a 15 year old it might be feasible that they’d want an adult meal, but kids that young won’t care).

Well, some are borderline, 11 or 12. They are the ones I’m really wondering about. I’m not going to offer a filet to a 5 year old, haha.
I guess we’ll take it on a case by case basis! thanks all!
