Kids can be fussy eaters and everyday brings a new challenge on what they’re going to like or dislike when it comes to eating. Restaurants can offer a kid’s sampler platter the week of the grand opening. The sampler platter will introduce new foods offered on the kids menu that parents may be hesitant to order as a full meal. Items would include three meats, veggies and choice of breads.
