. Do what you have to do to have fun and all be happy! And never hurts to ask the servers what your options are. If adults can be picky and sub things in and out of their meals why is it such a big deal for kids. They won't be picky forever (we hope). I'm not sure why people get so bent out of shape when we ask about accommodations for picky eaters- we parents need to stick together, we will all have our struggles, right?!
And that's absolutely correct. I never went without the old Cheerios in my diaper bag.
But once my son was on solid foods, he ate what the restaurant offered him. If not, he colored and drew and that was that. We fed him after or asked the server for crackers.
