Should restaurants charge a baby fee?



Should babies be paying their way at restaurants too?

  • Should babies be paying their way at restaurants, too?
Restaurants often offer promotions wherein children eat free. Kids' meals are typically less expensive. These are traditional marketing strategies that account for two things: Kids eat less, and they typically come attached to at least one full-paying adult.

But a restaurant in Croydon, England, is apparently turning that idea on its head [h/t Eater]. Cosmo, an Asian buffet, is now charging a baby plate fee of 3 pounds (about $4.67 in U.S. dollars). Should parents be made to pay for a baby at the table, the same way a plate-sharing fee might apply? Would you go to a restaurant that charged a baby fee?
