Before children, the biggest concern about going for a coffee was whether or not it was going to taste any good. Once the kids come along, there's nappy bags to be stocked, snacks to be packed, hats, sunscreen, shoes and multiple changes of clothing to be sorted. And that's before you even get out the door - once you've left the house, you need to find a venue that's good for children. That means a play area, toys, a kids' menu, close to a playground, highchairs, change facilities....the more of these boxes the venue can tick, the better for parents!
