Sometimes, general dining out strategies can only help so much. When you eat at a privately-owned or ethnic restaurant, there's often no pamphlet or website with nutritional information and amenities offered. How do you know what to order, especially when you're bringing children along? |
That's why we researched and collected tips for the most popular restaurant cuisines.
This article is part of our BabyFit Family-Friendly Dining Guide. We tried to emphasize kid-friendly foods and health at the same time. As we believe in all things in moderation, you'll find a few indulgences and treats on each of our menus. We also provide pros and cons about this type of cuisine, plus some activities to entertain children at restaurants. Ole! Mexican food is fun and festive. From tacos to burritos, kids are probably familiar with south-of-the-border dishes!
Ask your children if they know any Spanish words. Chances are, they have learned a few in school. Start simple, with "casa" house , "agua" water , and "amigo" friend .
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.
