Family Dining Guide for Specific Cuisines

Find Kid-Friendly Choices ay Any Restaurant

Dining out as a family can be a challenge, especially when you venture beyond burgers and chicken fingers.

That's why we researched and collected tips for the most popular restaurant cuisines. From Chinese to Southern barbecue, and Italian to Indian, it's all here in our cuisine-specific guide.

We scoured menus and created lists of kid-friendly appetizers, main dishes and even desserts. Plus, we offer tips on how to entertain children at some of the most common restaurants and the pros and cons of each cuisine. Some recommendations are healthy, while others are a "special treat."

Note: Pregnant women should avoid eating deli and processed meats, soft cheeses, and some types of seafood due to the risk of illness to herself and her unborn child. Eating raw or undercooked meat, poultry or seafood also poses health risks. Find more information on which foods to avoid here.
