Summer holiday dining ideas for kids

Beat the school holiday slump with the best foodie ideas and offers to keep you and the little ones happy

Nice spice at Nando’s

For a stress-free lunch you can always count on a cheeky bit of chicken.

The Nandinos menu is perfect for under 10s with a main and a marinade of your choice (tone down the peri peri or keep it zingy depending on tiny tastebuds), two sides and a dessert or drink, all for just £5.95. Chicken wings all round!

Mini Ninjas at Yo! Sushi

Kids are always welcome at Yo! and it’s the ideal place to bring your mini-adventurous eaters. Let them choose from the colourful plates going around the sushi belt or opt for the specially designed Mini Ninja menu, complete with colouring sheet.

Our top picks are the delicious Sustainable Salmon Maki – perfect for introducing your little ones to sushi – and everyone’s favourite, the (slightly milder) Chicken Katsu Curry.

Spot the animals at Giraffe

Kids going a little bit wild this summer? We have just the thing! Dine in at Giraffe and kids will receive a free Schleich toy with every Kids Meal Deal. There are five animals to collect including a polar bear, zebra and (of course!) a giraffe.

There is also a fun-filled activity sheet so while your little ones wait for their Hidden Veggie Pasta or Sunshine Chicken Salad they will be kept thoroughly entertained.

Delicious treats at Coal

If you’re in need of a crowd-pleasing lunch, head over to Coal for guaranteed family favourites. Youngsters can choose a starter, main and drink for just £5.95 and the menu is packed full of winners such as hot dogs, pizzas and tasty chicken lollipops.

On the dessert menu, the warm chocolate brownie and mini doughnuts might prove to be a little too tempting, but at just 99p each you can afford to treat the family.

French classics at Café Rouge

For little diners of all ages, Café Rouge serves up the perfect solution with both a kid’s set menu for ages 7-12 (£7.95 for three courses and a drink) and a petit menu for mini guests, for ages 2-6 years (£5.95 for three courses and a drink).

Les enfants will love sampling the many gastro delights including Mini Moules, Chicken Goujons and of course, Le Burger.
