When we would go out to eat with our kids when they were quite young, most of the time, they would fuss and not finish their meals. So we decided to let them eat their meal at home before we went to a restaurant. My husband and I would order our meal along with desserts for the kids. There was never a problem getting them to finish their dessert. One of our kids was high-chair age so we would bring her a small snack from home.
This was a treat for all of us, the kids got dessert and we were able to relax and enjoy our meal. At a young age, most of the time, they are too busy looking around and not concentrating on what they are eating. Feeding them at home first and then allowing them to get dessert at the restaurant always solved this problem for us.
Try this to keep your children from getting restless while you wait for a restaurant order of food to arrive. One parent should go inside and place the order for everyone in the family. The children can play outside with the other parent, and when the order comes, all go inside. This makes life just that little bit less stressful.
