A great way to get children to start eating a wide variety of foods is to get them to try new foods - not just new foods that you serve up at home, but foods at places outside the home.

As surprising as it sounds, you may have the fussiest eater on the planet and though you are 100% sure he’s not going to try something that he’s never eaten or even seen before - boom!- He goes ahead and surprises you by wolfing down every morsel of food, which you were second-guessing yourself when you ordered it earlier.
Children are inquisitive and curious learners…just as much as we love trying something new every once in a while, so do they.
Being a parent to a fussy eater myself - trust me, know! I get it! The road is very rocky with picky eaters, but sometimes the best way to deal with picky eaters is to go with the flow. Offer the food, let them choose what they eat from what’s offered and they might just nibble and spit it out, or they may push it away or they may just shock the living daylights out of you and gobble it up.
So, I’ve compiled a list of Asian restaurants that serve up delectable food (from the mouths of mums) that could be a great way to introduce your child's palate to Asian cuisine and may even accede to the fussiest of tastebuds.
Unfortunately most of the Aisan restaurants I visited have no play area for kids which makes entertaining little ones a bit difficult after a while, but some did have wide parks outside or small indoor play equipment that kept the kids occupied for at least a while.
And, of course, even without facilities for kids, we still kept them on the list as they still serve delicious food!
