Just returned from Ikea this afternoon where they are offering kids portions in the restaurant for 20p. There is large chicken nugget and chips, fish and chips, 5 meatballs and chips or pasta. It's served between 3pm and 9pm.

Ideal for small appetites and for 20p ideal for money savers too!

    Have you never heard of Jamie Theakston ? ( Sorry Jamie Oliver ) - Why should anyone think that IKEA meals are suitable for children.

    Frankly IKEA food is dreadful, unhealthy and not particularly good value for money

    Theakston's not jumping on the healthy eating bandwagon as well is he? He should stick to presenting The Games and keep his culinary opinions to himself. ;-)

    Thanks for the tip, we quite like the Ikea meatballs..

    Cheers

    I assume it was Jamie Oliver that the poster was referring to.

    I agree with the Ikea meat balls and nothing to stop you buying several childrens portions at 20p to feed an adult ;)

    This is your opinion, of course. Maybe Jamie Theakson agrees with Jamie Oliver...who knows :confused:

    I think it is very good value for money.:money:

    Thanks OP for this info, I only live a mile away so might pop in sometime for dinner.

    Feel this response was a bit harsh and seems critical of OP. Although I've only ever had the breakfast at IKEA I found it excellent value at only £1 with free coffee before 10am. While I always do try to give my children healthy, homemade food I also feel that the occasional "unhealthy" meal will not mean they suddenly become obese couch potatoes!

    Told OH about the offer, so we went there for dinner tonight.
    I had meatballs, he had a ratatouille (sp) in a pepper with wild rice and the kids had pasta (with a free piece of fruit each as well). Not unhealthy at all.
