Kids are back-to-school and that means parents are back to busy! For those nights when the day just got away from you, isn’t it great when someone else makes dinner for you?
A number of restaurants offer kids eat free meals during this back-to-school time and even year around.
Tip: I suggest you call your favorite restaurants and ask what day they offer free kids meals and put them on your calendar.
Also, we have a longer version of kids eat free on each day of the week, here!
