Sometimes after a long day of being an employee, a mom, a dad, and just an all-around human being, we're just too tired or just don’t feel like cooking. Maybe you don’t even have the funds to cook the sort of meal you want, and that’s okay.

I wanted to share with you five restaurants that allow your children to eat for free! That’s right, free of charge because we all know especially while going through a pandemic that feeding your children and also managing your funds can be two of the most nerve-wracking things we have had to deal with.

Hopefully, this article here makes it a little lighter of a load for you when it comes to making sure that the kiddos are full, fed, and happy. Also, let’s be honest: who doesn’t love a situation where things are free? So pack the kids in the car and head to one of these fine establishments.

Breakfast for Dinner

Breakfast for dinner is always an easy yes in my house, and at IHOP.

When taking the babies to IHOP, kids eat for free every day from 4 to 10 PM. You get one kids meal absolutely free when you purchase one adult entrée.

Thinking Mexican for Taco Tuesday? Freebirds also wants to get in on taking care of the kids for dinner. Kids younger than 12 can eat for free with the purchase of an adult entrée. They can get a kids meal with a choice of either a burrito or quesadilla, plus chips with a beverage. They also invite your kids to use the foil to create sculptures for display in the restaurant.
