Learning to cook and meal prepping is a very useful skill to help your family reach FI faster. But where FI differs from traditional personal finance, is that we don’t subscribe to the “latte factor” mentality–which takes an all or nothing approach to indulgences. If eating out for your family is a necessity from time to time, or simply a mindful treat–we want to do it, but do it smarter!

We scoured the internet for the best kids eat free days at all the major chains. We’ve collected what days of the week and what rules apply for all of the major chains that offer “Kids Eat Free Days” for easy planning. If you’d prefer to scour by restaurant name to see when your favorite place is offering a deal, hit Control+F to search!

So pack your crayons and bring your kids, here are all the “Kids Eat Free” deals we could find!
