Kids selection at Boma

I am debating on whether or not to try Boma for dinner. DD is very picky and I remember a few years ago there was pasta and fries on the kids section. Just wondering what items are available at Boma now for kids, can anyone who has been there recently remember?

There is no such thing as a "kids buffet" or even an "adult buffet" at Disney. They have buffets with one section lower to the floor which has on it items that kids tend to enjoy (such as pizza, hot dogs, chicken strips, mac & cheese, etc.). Any person at the buffet (including children less than age three who are free) can get anything from any part of the buffet.

Thanks for the reply. I guess I really meant what do they offer in that one section lower to the floor that might offer pizza or chicken strips. I realize she can eat from all the offerings but she usually sticks to the one section with the pizza. I remember in the years past they offered fries and pasta but I thought I read that those had been replaced with something like chicken legs

Kids offerings at Boma are usually spaghetti and meatballs or chicken strips and chips. I don't think I have ever seen pizza or burger there but have not been for about a year.

Just another note: the chefs are Boma are super helpful and will most probably make you something different if necessary.

We were there Thanksgiving week, and the kids area had pasta (penne shape) with marinara, chicken legs, meatballs, and Mac & cheese. My kids also ate a ton of the fruit.

A few weeks ago there was no pizza, chicken strips, or fries.

I have found the chefs at Boma to be very accommodating and if there is nothing that your picky child will eat, I am confident they will find something to satisfy them. In fact, the last two times we went were the days the Butternut Squash soup was not in rotation. When I expressed my disappointment (nicely), both times I was brought out a big bowl of it. It's no wonder it is my only "must do" restaurant after all the visits we have had.

There were not any chicken strips when we were there in August. I asked the waiter and he brought out chicken nuggets for my son who is very picky. They were very accomodating.
