We’re making it optional, but the venue is charging the kis’ price for under 12s regardless of what they eat.  I’d say just make it the default and don’t give the option unless it’s specifically asked for.

We chose the Menu for the kids, but first we asked their parents! 🙂

Ours is on the RSVP card as an option alongside the others, and I’m just assuming that most of our guests who will be bringing kids will select the kids’ meal for them, and will not try to choose it for adults … if there are any surprises I guess we will deal with them on a case-by-case basis, but I think the best thing to do here is trust to our guests’ common sense and not create unnecessary stress for ourselves.

If anything, I think a couple of my older cousins (15-16ish and picky eaters) will prefer the kid’s meal when they’re really “supposed” to be getting an adult plate. I would be delighted to pay less for their meal and give them what they want – not sure if the venue will allow that.

There is one family I can think of where I know the kids have more mature palates and the parents prefer to give them adult food rather than over-processed kid’s food. Frankly, I agree with that POV, and they are close friends, so if they request adult plates for their kids I’m inclined to indulge. I may ask if they think their three children (all under age 10) could split two adult entrees and get enough to eat – that might be a good compromise in that case.

We made it an option on the RSVP card along with the other meal choices. We did get a few requests for adult meals for kids that were under 5. Were we annoyed, yes, but what can you do…. Our venue charged us full adult price on the kids that ate adult meals. yay
