My niece and nephews recently came up for lunch and I wasn't sure where I was going to take them. They're pretty young so I needed to find a kid friendly restaurant so I did a little research to figure out where to go. I found several good places for lunch and dinner, so if you're looking for a new spot to take the kids, take a look after the jump.

    Tropical Smoothie Cafe

    Tropical Smoothie Cafe is definitely kid friendly and I ended up taking my niece and nephews here. They have five convenient locations throughout Genesee County and they have a great kids menu. They have kid's smoothies, pizza, quesadillas, junior chicken caesar salads and more. They have good cookies for dessert too!

    Another good place to take the kids is Fuddruckers for some good burgers. Their children's menu includes items such as hot dogs, grill cheese and even mac & cheese. They can also choose from fries, fruit cups, apple qwedges and more. Another good place to go that is fun for the entire family.

    If you want to take the kids for some delicious pizza or other Italian food, make a night of it at Latina's in Flint. Latina's is a nice and relaxing atmosphere that's perfect for family dining. The orders are huge so your kids won't go hungry.

    Kathy's in Flushing is another good kid friendly restaurant. They have a nice menu and kids eat free on Tuesday. How could you go wrong with that? They also have a lot of great specials for the adults as well.

    You can't beat the prices at Applebee's which is another great kid friendly restaurant. There are several locations throughout the county which makes it very convenient to get to. Kid's can order chicken tenders, mini cheeseburgers and more, topping it off with some fabulous dessert. You also can't beat the two items for only $20.
