Should We Offer A Kids’ Meal?

Question: We have many children attending our reception, some as young as four and five years old. Do they need to get the same meal as the adult guests or can I arrange children's meals for them?

Answer: by The Knot

You should definitely consider offering an option just for the young ‘uns. It may save you a chunk of change, and little kids are going to prefer chicken nuggets to chicken a l’orange anyway! Talk to your reception site manager or caterer about your options. Many places provide special meals for children that cost half the price. If this is not a common practice for them, perhaps they will be willing to split a few adult meals in half for your smaller guests, or make them otherwise kid friendly — putting slices of filet mignon between a couple of pieces of bread, for example.
