Every parent has experienced the frustration of having to force feed their kid so that they’ll finish their food. Been there, done that - not as the parent, but as the fussy little eater. 

And paying for a full meal that can’t be finished may put quite a strain on your pocket. So to make eating out with your children a little more enjoyable, here’s a list of restaurants in Singapore with free food for kids.

The kicker? Most of them also have a play area for little ones to exhaust all their energy at so by the time food comes, they’d gobble everything down and leave nothing to waste. 

 

1. Ippudo at Tanjong Pagar - special ramen menu for kids

 

Kids under 12 eat for free on weekends

For something on the softer and soupier side, we recommend trying out the ramen at Ippudo. Their star dishes include Chuku Soba ($16), Karaka-men ($17) and Akamaru Shinaji ($16).

Apart from these delectable dishes, the restaurant offers little ones under the age of 12 free tonkotsu ramen with sides of healthy rice balls and potato salad with mixed vegetables.

If you’re one to pamper your (kids’) palette, French cuisine is a good place to start. You can indulge in that at La Brasserie, a restaurant within The Fullerton Bay Hotel that offers up delectable lunch and dinner sets.

With a dimly-lit interior, we can be quick to assume that Paulaner Brauhaus is no place for kids. On the contrary, it’s one of the most kid-friendly bars in Singapore.

Not only do kids under the age of 5 eat for free, but they also have the opportunity to get arty at designated stations for colouring and mask making. 

It’s also pretty interesting to know that Paulaner Brauhaus is Singapore’s first authentic German microbrewery. So, if you’re looking for a new watering hole whilst catering to your kid’s needs, this place kills two birds with one stone.

Another popular choice from the menu is Pork Schnitzel and Fries ($25.90)
