There’s nothing less inspiring than the classic ‘anything-with-chips’ kids’ menu, so luckily help is on hand as we reveal some of our favourite spots for dining with the kids. Complete with distractions in the form of crayons, colouring pages and other activities, eating out with kids has never looked so good! 

Serving up cuisines from around the world, here you’ll find the best kids’ menus from some of our favourite family dining chains. Did you know we can also help you to save more on dining out together with our restaurant deals and vouchers?

  1. Prezzo

    Prezzo Kids Menu

    Italian dining is centred around family, so it’s no surprise there's a top-notch Prezzo kids’ menu to match. Focusing on a variety of classic Italian dishes packed full of flavour and nutrition, choose from the ‘Piccoli’ menu for kids aged up to five, or go for the ‘Bambini’ menu, designed for bigger appetites for those aged 5-11 - both packed full of real Italian favourites.

    Starters include Garlic Dough Dippers, Rainbow Vegetable Sticks and Tomato Bruschetta, whilst for main you can take your pick from pizza, pasta or calzone with a choice of toppings and sauces to suit even the fussiest little eaters. Then, if you have room left for pudding, finish off your meal with everything from ice cream and Nutella® Dough Dippers, to Banana and Honeycomb Dippers. 

    Tempted? Day Out With The Kids Members can enjoy 3 courses from the Kids’ Menu, plus a drink, for just £1, valid for up to two children per paying adult.
