Kids Eat Free! 

There’s not a parent I know that doesn’t appreciate a “Kids Eat Free” day.  Personally, after a long day of pounding coffee, wiping butts and folding laundry sometimes the only push I need to go to a restaurant is a free meal for my toddler. Ok fine, I wasn’t planning on cooking. Free kids meals just make me feel better about my life choices.

I have compiled a list of some popular restaurants in the Twin Cities (Minnesota) area that offer a kids eat free meal. Some of which offer the meal for a discounted price around .99¢. Most require purchase of 1 adult entree per Free children’s dinner, age 12 and under.

My personal favorite is the quaint farm to table , Dakota Junction in Mound, MN. If you venture out, you may just spot me there on a Tuesday evening. 

If you have any other local favorites with Kids Eat Free specials send me a comment and I’ll update the list.

Peach (2) because ice cream is delicious

I’d recommend getting a glass of wine or beer with the money you saved on your kids meal. If you had a day like I did you probably deserve it.

Cheers! – Hilary
