Are the kid's still leaning towards mac and cheese and fishsticks? If so, what is the mystique in these items? Could we be at the start of a new generation that is going back to basics like maybe teaching our country's history and what made us great instead of now not wanting to "hurt" someone's feelings?

The more I move around this site the more I find and this group is where I need to be.
I'm a personal chef and I started to teach kids cooking classes. This helps not only lessen the picky eater factor a bit but gives the kids great self esteem when they can say "I made this".
Children's menu's well, I have had a strong opinion about this for a long time. If you go to my page you'll find my posting about this very subject. Also at roobifood.com I posted an article that relates to this topic. (click Marin to find my writings).
I think far to many restaurants don't even think about it because we keep buying what they offer and the cycle continues. But I know a lot of people where I live in Marin county,Ca. are fed up with this and want to see change.
How do we do this? Do I just straight out talk to where I eat and offer to help?
Because I don't work in a restauarant I'm not sure of the protocol and all that entails.
Things need to change both and I'm hoping to help find a solution.

I wa at a restaurant in Chicago about a year ago. It was bout 230
pm. The place was wide open as far as availability was concerned.

The hostes sat me about two tables behind a family having thier late lunch. This family had two of the worst behaved children I had ever seen.

I begged to the hostess and server to move. But, "Well, we are short handed and this is all we can do." They apologized profusely. I don't get mad often, but that had to be my worst
restaurant experience in a long time.

My retort was "If you are going to do something about it, then do it. But, don't stand there and apologize and not do anything."

The parents were just blind to the whole incident and couldn't understand why I was complaining about their "angels" !

Whoooops, forgot one! The "sliders" have been very successful with the munchins! Miniature hamburger bun with a miniature beef patty. This product is "NBR" friendly! (No Brain Required)

We serve meatloaf and mini corndogs along with all the usual kids stuff. We have a microwavable pizza that is served at schools making this an instant hit due to the identity of the product. They grew up with it in school. We also make a pita bread pizza for them.

TED TALKS VIDEO

TED: Hamish Jolly: A shark-deterrent wetsuit (and it's not what you think) - Hamish Jolly (2013)

Hamish Jolly, an ocean swimmer in Australia, wanted a wetsuit that would deter a curious shark from mistaking him for a potential source of nourishment. (Which, statistically, is rare, but certainly a fate worth avoiding.) Working with a team of scientists, he and his friends came up with a fresh approach — not a shark cage, not a suit of chain-mail, but a sleek suit that taps our growing understanding of shark vision.

TED: Michel Laberge: How synchronized hammer strikes could generate nuclear fusion - Michel Laberge (2014)

Our energy future depends on nuclear fusion, says Michel Laberge. The plasma physicist runs a small company with a big idea for a new type of nuclear reactor that could produce clean, cheap energy. His secret recipe? High speeds, scorching temperatures and crushing pressure. In this hopeful talk, he explains how nuclear fusion might be just around the corner.

TED: Sarah Lewis: Embrace the near win - Sarah Lewis (2014)

At her first museum job, art historian Sarah Lewis noticed something important about an artist she was studying: Not every artwork was a total masterpiece. She asks us to consider the role of the almost-failure, the near win, in our own lives. In our pursuit of success and mastery, is it actually our near wins that push us forward?

TED: Matthew Carter: My life in typefaces - Matthew Carter (2014)

Pick up a book, magazine or screen, and more than likely you'll come across some typography designed by Matthew Carter. In this charming talk, the man behind typefaces such as Verdana, Georgia and Bell Centennial (designed just for phone books -- remember them?), takes us on a spin through a career focused on the very last pixel of each letter of a font.
