Children's menu with a free or half-price meal at the restaurant

Fewer and fewer restaurants offer free or low-cost meals for children. But there’s still some and here’s the list.

Always check with the restaurant to find out if the promotion is valid and its conditions, as these change rapidly. Please note that the promotions below may end, change or be modified at any time.

Don’t forget an ID card with the child’s date of birth (such as a health insurance card or passport), in case the restaurant needs proof.

Restaurant credit cards

What do you do to maximize your birthday or restaurant expenses? These credit cards give 5 points per dollar, which can then be redeemed for other rewards:

Then use those points to deduct from your credit card balance, get gift cards or treat yourself to a nice, inexpensive vacation. Of course, be sure to pay off your credit card balance at the end of each month. Otherwise, the savings will go up in smoke.
