Tired of the same old grilled cheese and pasta options on the kid’s menu? Check out these local restaurants offering a wider array of choices that are also protein and vegetable-heavy. Don’t worry, we won’t tell your picky eater that it’s also healthy!

Kids can enjoy happy hour, too! Yakuza, located off of N Killingsworth Street, has "kids happy hour" each Wednesday and Thursday from 5-6 pm and Sundays from 5-8 pm. Avocado slices or edamame are only $1, rice or noodles for $2 and grilled meat options for $3. When the weather's nice, there's also a great backyard garden area to explore.
