Restaurant Hack Can Help You Save Money and Lose Weight

Ordering from the children's menu isn't exclusively for youngsters these days.

Many adults are turning to social media to share their choice of picking dishes from the kids' section at eateries as a way to spend less and opt for smaller portions.

Recent TikTok clips feature users flaunting their child-sized meals, suggesting that these dishes offer a decent serving size for a fraction of the cost.

For instance, the TikTok account @nateandsaraheats, which describes itself as providing "brutally honest food reviews" in its bio, showcased kids' meals from Olive Garden in a video uploaded on August 26.

For a mere $7 per dish, the duo on TikTok received Fettuccine Alfredo with chicken (with an additional $2 for the chicken) and broccoli on the side. They also had another dish featuring grilled chicken Alfredo accompanied by a side of spaghetti in a red sauce.

Every dish was accompanied by a complimentary beverage and a pair of breadsticks.

"Win!" exclaimed "Sarah" by the video's conclusion, which has now garnered 25,000 views.

According to the restaurant's digital menu, Olive Garden's children's menu presents a variety of choices, ranging from pasta and pizza to protein and side combinations, all priced at $6.99.

On another note, a full-sized Olive Garden chicken Alfredo dish is priced at $19.99.

Earlier this year, a widely-shared TikTok from @aholidayyyyy highlighted the benefits of choosing from the children's menu at Chili’s.

The TikToker's "eat cheap" strategy resulted in a bill of less than $8 for a serving of chicken wings and stuffed potatoes.

"When I tell you 10/10 quick meal — this is the one," she commented in the clip, which has amassed close to 60,000 likes.

Regarding the response of some aforementioned restaurants to adults selecting from the kids' menus, a recent article in The Washington Post observed that "even if a menu states that it’s for kids — and some specify that means 12 or under — few restaurants will enforce it." Additionally, a number of eateries seemingly view this trend as beneficial for their business.
