Cooking at home isn’t always the best option. Between dance, Girl Scouts, horse back riding lessons, and life we don’t always have time to cook. Let’s be honest. Sometimes, I just don’t feel like it. I have researched and put together a list of all of the places in Murfreesboro and Nashville, TN where kids can eat for free or very inexpensively. Going out to eat doesn’t have to cost a fortune. It’s just about picking the right restaurant on the right day!

    This is an impressive list of budget eats for kids. I have three kids, and we could totally make good use out of this list!

    Fantastic list! It’s always hard to travel and shell out money for meals that the little ones barely touch. This makes it much easier to feed them on budget.
