Restaurants to Moms: Come BACK!

sign up for the momlogic newsletter Tweet This

Restaurants' desperate attempts to get family business can be a good thing for us all.


Since families are eating out less, chains like KFC have created Web sites like to woo us back. Bennigan's is offering children's books, Etch-A-Sketch-es and video games to keep kids entertained and even toss in a
$5 coupon.

You want our business so bad, restaurants? May we suggest:

•High chairs with seatbelts that are not crusted over with the regurgitated food of a million toddlers?

•Something other than crayons so coated in wax they don't mark paper.

•A placemat (that accompanies said crayons) that has space for actual coloring. An 18-month old can't do Sudoku, people.

•Kids meals that are actually kid-size.

• And would it be too much to ask for a waitperson who isn't repulsed by our existence before we even open our mouths?

What do restaurants need to do to get your business back?

I’d appreciate healthier meals for the kids. Chicken nuggets and easy mac are not necessarily round meals.

Cleaner and accessible diaper changing stations in both the men’s room and women’s room.

I’d like a waiter who is aware that kids won’t sit quietly for 20 mins while we wait for them to remember to take our orders and then wait for another 30 mins for the food! It’s Bob Evan’s people, not Wolfgang Puck’s, you can bring the kids’ chicken fingers out first!
