Sometimes you just don’t feel like cooking, but eating out as a family can get pricey! Check out these kids eat free (or cheap) deals when dining with the younger set.
However, we recommend that you call ahead to confirm that these restaurants still have their Kids Eat Free offer or discount since the days or locations can often change without notice and there are sometimes specific conditions required.

AYCE Sushi All you can eat sushi is a departure from the french fry and burger-heavy traditional childrens’ menus, but many AYCE restaurants in Oshawa can offer good value for families, because at many the price per meal varies by age. For example, a two-year-old would be charged $2, while a nine-year-old would cost you $9. Just be mindful of ordering too much – you have to pay extra for food you don’t eat! Location: Various.
