Most restaurants have kids' menus. But will we start seeing menus for kids-to-be?
The Guardian writes about a new fad at restaurants -- pregnancy menus designed specifically for the dietary needs of the pregnant set. Think sushi-less placards at Japanese restaurants and dishes scrubbed of unpasteurized cheese. Because restaurants have finally figured out that you don't stop going out until after you have the baby.
The Guardian suggests that it could be a way to manage expectations and make sure that dinner isn't a disappointment:
Rather than spend forever poring over the menu and quizzing the staff on the ingredients in every dish you might fancy, wouldn't it be better to be given a choice of dishes you know are appropriate?While I'm not aware of any pregnancy menus in Kansas City, I know that both chefs and servers are sensitive to the needs of diners. A simple question posed to either could tell you whether a dish is OK to eat.
