Kids and restaurants -- avoid the children's menu?

That's what this article advises.
Children’s menus aim too low, he argues — they’re a parenting crutch.
Of course, what they're really talking about here is the Family Meal, an ideal to which I definitely aspire, but which is currently hampered by the fact that Speck heads up for her pre-bed routine around 6pm. Still, we generally try to get her to try whatever we're eating, but with some peanut butter and crackers at the bottom of the bag just in case. I'd been looking forward to an era when she would eat some of these common Kid Foods -- maybe I will up my aspirations about getting her to Try New Things instead.
