I would like an opinion. For our reception we are having an Italian buffet which is $40 per person and way more that a child of 11 and under could eat. For this reason we are opting to provide children 11 and under a kids meal of which they will have three options to choose from as those will be $18 per kid. The kids plated meals will be served right upon seating so that they do not have to wait long. I would like to indicated on my RSVP cards politely that for children 11 and under a kids meal will be what is being provided. Of course if they want to nibble off their parents plate and or their parents go up for seconds to share a bit with the kids that is fine as well.
On my reception RSVP card under dinner selection I was thinking of putting the following verbiage:
Dinner Selection (children 11 and under will be served a special plated meal)
#______ Children 11 and under (select from options below)
#______ Option 1
#______ Option 2
#______ Option 3
+Indicate any special dietary restrictions or allergies________________
Does this provide clear expectations for any parents bringing children 11 and under that their children will be given special attention to make sure they have good food right away but that the adult buffet is for the adults only without being rude?
