Taking your kids out for a healthy lunch or dinner can often be a testing time. Getting a child to sit still and finish their food without causing trouble can test the patience of even the most relaxed of parents. Fortunately for parents living in Dallas, there are a number of great places to take your kids out for an enjoyable, healthy meal.
Below, we take a look at three healthy eating options that your kids will enjoy. Taking three fairly different restaurants, whether your child enjoys the arcades and game playing, watching their meal being created right in front of them or an immersive rainforest experience, there is a healthy eating option for every child.
- Dave and Buster’s
Dave and Buster’s follow a model that has proved incredibly popular among younger kids. Combining a great eatery with the fun of a large arcade, which boasts an incredibly diverse range of games, Dave and Buster’s has been serving great food and entertaining children and their parents since 80’s.
Located on Composite Drive in Dallas, the establishment offers a wide variety of food, with the menu regularly changing, and operates a great ticket reward system that the kids can use to exchange for prizes.
While not all the food is aimed at those looking for a healthy meal, they have more than enough healthy food options to make it a viable option for health-conscious eaters. It’s best to plan for an early dinner, as the restaurant becomes a popular hangout for those on the local singles scene later at night
2. Fuji Steak House and Sushi Bar
Though this restaurant may not be what you traditionally conceive of as a kids’ restaurant, they are more than welcoming to families who wish to have lunch or take an early dinner. The kids will be kept entranced by the antics of the hibachi chefs, whose knife wielding skills cannot fail to impress.
When the family all sit down together at one of the many teppan grills, everyone gets to see their food being prepared and cooked right in front of them. The artistry involved in the preparation will have the kids wolfing down vegetables like there is no tomorrow.
There are plenty of healthy options available and if you can get your kids hooked on sushi at a young age you will be starting a healthy habit that will last a lifetime.
- Rainforest Café
The Rainforest kids may just be one of the top kids attractions in Dallas. With a complete jungle theme, including animatronics animals, complete rainforest décor and pretend thunderstorms happening periodically, the restaurant is built around keeping kids entertained for as long their visit.
The Rainforest Café specializes in taking care of families and their children. Coloring books and crayons are provided; the staff is friendly and incredibly helpful. Booster seats or high chairs are readily available and the menu is orientated around enabling children to enjoy healthy eating. Overall, this is a restaurant that your kids will love and parents will appreciate.
