    There are lots of questions about picky eaters. I have a non-picky eater age 4. I want to do the dining plan. Which restaurants have the best children's meals? She gets tired of chicken nuggets, burgers, fries, hot dogs, pizza, etc. after a few days.

    Hi Erin,

    When it comes to satisfying your non-picky eater, table service restaurants are the way to go.  I find that if we dine at a restaurant that serves buffet or family-style meals, my children can choose from a large selection of items, and they can be as adventurous as their taste buds will allow.  Our favorite restaurants in this category include: Biergarten, Boma, 1900 Park Fare, and 'Ohana.

    Even at restaurants where you order off a menu, your child will have some non-standard options - usually a fish of the day or a steak option is provided.  Teppan-Edo, Marrakesh and Jiko are all great options.

    Counter service restaurants are a little more difficult.  The majority of these eateries serve standard, kid-friendly fare: hamburgers, hot dogs, chicken nuggets, grilled cheese.  However, you can find some different things if you really look.  Flame Tree BBQ in Animal Kingdom has a baked drumstick.  ABC Commissary at Hollywood Studios has a ham & cheese wrap.  Yakitori House in Epcot serves Teriyaki Chicken.  Columbia Harbour House at Magic Kingdom has a chicken salad option.  So different choices are out there, you just need to be willing to look around.

    Hope this helps.  Have a magical vacation!
