Being a parent is hard in so many ways.
Bringing kids out for a meal can be extremely difficult, especially if there is no entertainment to keep them occupied. However, nothing beats having the time to bond with your loved ones over a hearty meal and to see the goofy smiles on your kids’ faces. Kids are fickle creatures and probably have the same attention span as a puppy. That said, having kid-friendly elements such as a playground or a kids menu would help family meals a lot less chaotic.
From cafes with a soft-fall playground to a mini buffet catered to kids and a dedicated reading corner to the little ones, here is our guide to 13 kid-friendly restaurants in Singapore.
Life races ahead so fast that we sometimes don’t even realise what’s happening and how much we need to bring ourselves to a pause just to take in how we feel. That desperation for a brief reprieve is how we find ourselves booking our next flight out, or if we can’t, we do with a holiday within our sunny island.
Today, we have a new destination in the South of Singapore to share. Well, we’d like to think of Native Kitchen as a destination. It is located within Village Hotel at Sentosa and it is a restaurant that celebrates the best of islander cuisine.
Aside from serving up an International breakfast, Native Kitchen specialises in Polynesian and Islander cuisines which offer a myriad of dishes using the freshest ingredients and culinary techniques that bring out their natural flavours. With that, prepare your taste buds for a gastronomical feast that will leave not just the belly, but the heart full as well.
The family-friendly restaurant boasts serious resort vibes and with so many attractions in the proximity, it is no wonder Native Kitchen is fast becoming one of the hottest spots in Singapore for families, big groups or even if you just want a casual weekend date. Here are 8 reasons why we love Native Kitchen at Village Hotel at Sentosa.
Our favourite Fresh Fruits Lab (FFL) is back at it again. They have opened a second cafe—Fresh Fruits Lab Z Edition—in Clementi just behind NUS.
The new outlet is nothing short of amazing. Just like their previous branch, they stick to the core of incorporating fruits into their menu as much as possible, being kid-friendly, and serving up absolutely delicious food at even more reasonable prices than before.
We already know what’s great at their first branch, so what is it about The Z Edition that makes it fantastic? A bouncy castle for kids during the weekends! And on top of that, there are some tweaks to the menu and here is everything we love.
From now until 30 Nov 2018, kids below 8 dine for free during weekends at Fresh Fruits Lab Z when you quote ‘ladyironchef’. Every order of a main course comes with a complimentary kid’s main (from the kids’ menu).
Calling all mommies: this is also the next brunch spot you must bring your kids to for a jolly good time!
Rhombus Pizza SG is a new Muslim-owned pizza buffet restaurant that allows you to pick your own toppings, design the pizza of your dreams and bake it yourself. Create and eat to your heart’s content for 90 minutes.

Raising kids in Singapore is not a cheap affair and a family meal can be costly, especially when you bring them to a good restaurant; even kids’ meals at many eateries do not come cheap.
We often see parents sharing mains with their little ones—either to save money or to “not waste food”. More often than not, it’s the former.
Fortunately, there are some restaurants in Singapore that have been generously offering free meals for children. Here are 5 Restaurants in Singapore Where Kids Dine For Free.
What was slated to be an early 2015 opening, quietly shifted to a purportedly late 2015 opening. Now, KidZania Singapore has made an official statement to say that the entertainment centre will only officially launch on 12 April 2016. This was confirmed after they hosted a recruitment drive in August 2015, where a total of 150 jobs were made available to the public.
KidZania promises an “interactive learning and entertainment experience for kids in a kid-sized city, through over 80 role-play activities”. Now, this makes waiting worth the while.
Mark your calendars for April, because it is going to be a ton of fun and games here for your little ones. KidZania will be education through play!
As you become parents, it’s inevitable for you to put the needs of your children before your own and to make sure that they are well-fed even when you are bringing them along for a gathering with friends, hence the constant need to look out for Kid-Friendly Cafes in Singapore. Some cafes only offer main course items in their menu, which is often frustrating as you cannot possibly stuff your children with such large portions of food.
Other than the portioning, another concern for parents is to make sure that their children can be kept occupied after the meal. Thankfully, most cafes in this list provide outlets of entertainment such as playgrounds or art and craft activities to keep your children engaged while you chat the afternoon away with your pals. These amenities are often available within your reach so your children will not be able to escape from your sight.
Without further ado, we share with you 12 Kid-Friendly Cafes in Singapore. Now, you and your little ones have more options when dining out!
These days, the simplest way to engage a child is to pass him an electronic device. However, that is not the healthiest way – both physically and emotionally. Bonding with your child does not necessarily mean playing games or watching a movie together on an electronic device. Try ditching those devices for one day and spend some quality time with your little one!
Children just love to play. They are active learners who learn through play. Not sure where to bring them to? Here are 12 Kids Friendly Activities in Singapore! These places not only enhance parent-child bonding, but create fun experiences for the little darlings as well!
