Are restaurants okay with people smuggling in their own food for little kids? Do they see a difference between a zippy cup/handful of goldfish crackers and a full-on meal? [more inside]

I'm taking my two daughters to see my family and we're driving, from central Pennsylvania to New Orleans. Here's the basic route
. Where should we eat? What should we detour to see? It'll be a two or three day drive. Help us plan it.

So some friends of mine, who have a two-year-old, are coming to visit me this weekend in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. I don't have kids, but I know there are a lot of kids in the neighborhood, so I know there has to be some kid-friendly dining options.
I only moved in to the neighborhood about a month ago, so I have not had time to explore. Ideally I'd like to find a bunch of kid-friendly restaurants in the neighborhood and send the kid's mom a list of them so that she can pick one out.

If you follow the advice of Ellyn Satter, how do you handle second helpings when your child wants more of one food but hasn't eaten even a bite of the other things? [more inside]

My 11-year-old nephew loves to make (mostly cucumber) sushi, and he also loves cupcakes. While goofing around with him about the Sunday we'll spend together - his parents and sister are excluded from this, it's strictly us - I foolishly said, well, we'll make sushi cupcakes! And I'm being held to it. My execution is not up to my imagination. Please help me realize this!

Were sick of Zeek's Pizza. We're sick of Blue C Sushi and Taco Del Mar. We're even sick of Red Mill. What are some good kid freindly dining places in the Phinney/Ballard/Fremont area? (said kid is 4)

Why do kids dislike spicy food and is this culturally specific? What about Mexican/Thai/Indian/etc kids who can't avoid it?

I have a four year old son who simply refuses to eat his meals in a timely fashion. This has been an ongoing problem since he was two years old and we've been trying various approaches, but have mainly been hoping that he grows out of it. But it's at the point that every single meal has become unpleasant because of his refusal to eat. [more inside]
