A recent Columbia University study found that children who often eat dinner with their parents not only report being closer as a family, but that regular family dinners yield benefits such as better self-esteem and higher grade point averages in school. The same study has shown that eating dinner as a family is not only good for the spirit, but that dinner conversations help develop a child's vocabulary more than reading.
IHOP restaurant's "Just for Kids" menu offers a variety of choices, from more traditional dinner items like the kids' Grilled Cheese Sandwich or items like the Jr. Chicken & Waffles. Junior Breakfastarians can also choose IHOP restaurant classic items like omelettes, French toast or classic buttermilk pancakes ... because at IHOP restaurants, breakfast for dinner is not only just accepted, it's encouraged.
"We're hopeful that families will take advantage of our 'Kids Eat Free' promotion to rediscover the joy of disconnecting from technology and daily stress and rediscover the joy of connecting with each other," said Thompson.
