Does your kid have a meltdown when you try to feed them something other than french fries? Is pizza the only food your child can stand to eat? Does mealtime generally make you want to pull your hair out? Any of these scenarios could make for a nightmare when dining out, but not at Time Out Market Miami. Nope, the South Beach food-and-drink destination with 17 kitchens offers plenty of options for parents as well as their children, no matter how selective the little ones may be. You’ll find the youngster-approved mac and cheese here, only much healthier, as well as a crowd-pleasing Margherita pie, plus a variety of plates you’re sure to order for yourself anyway only this time your kid might want to try them, too (everyone loves a Cuban frita). Have a hangry toddler on your hands? Pacify them with one of these dishes.

1. Cheese quesadilla at Coyo Taco

Restaurants South Beach

Some children develop sophisticated palates early in life, favoring the unique duck carnitas over the pedestrian cheese quesadilla. Thankfully, Coyo Taco has something for both. Does your child fall in the latter group? Feed them the eatery’s quesadilla made with a cheesy blend stuffed between two flour tortillas and griddled until melted. You’ll savor the few moments of silence while they happily tuck into their meal as much as they’ll love the dish itself.

2. Dirt Cup at Giorgio Rapicavoli

Restaurants South Beach

We’ve yet to meet a kid who can resist Giorgio Rapicavoli’s giant dirt cup. And, if we’re being honest, no adult has been able to turn down the layered dessert either. The spoonable treat spans the depth of a large bowl that’s filled with whipped Nutella, salted caramel, pretzels and the requisite “dirt” cookie crumbles. Share it or risk your kids never going to bed from the sugar rush.

3. Chicken fingers and fries at Kush

Restaurants South Beach

There are few things on Kush’s menu that kids won’t eat, even the alligator bites, which any unsuspecting person is likely to mistake for chicken. Though, if tricking your child into eating something doesn’t sit right, there’s actual fried poultry on the menu as well. Battered chicken strips are served alongside crispy french fries fresh out of the fryer (they’re cooled through, of course) and ketchup for a meal any kid (and hungover adult) will find impossible to resist.

4. Media noche croquetas at the Local Cuban

Restaurants South Beach

The staple of every Cuban gathering and everyone’s go-to when they hit up a ventanita (besides cafecito), the humble croqueta is also popular with the younger set. Once cooled, these toothsome, deep-fried ham fritters are a poppable treat that grown-ups can also share. At Time Out Market, chef Alberto Cabrera makes his a little differently, blending bechamel and other media-noche flavors and serving them alongside a mustard dipping sauce and fresh saltines.

5. Vegan mac and cheese at Love Life Cafe

Restaurants South Beach

If your little one is used to eating the cheesy stuff from the blue box, they’re in for a delicious treat at Time Out Market. Love Life’s vegan version of the American classic doesn’t just taste good, it’s healthy, too. The plant-based eatery makes theirs with gluten-free macaroni that’s been cooked perfectly al dente, covered in a rich, cashew-based alfredo sauce and topped with a faux parmesan crumble. It’s the kind of pasta dish that pairs just as well with a fine pinot from the Time Out Bar as it does with a juice box.

6. Frita clasica at Leña

Restaurants South Beach

Kids might not immediately understand what a frita is, but the compact, Cuban version of a hamburger will easily fit within their two tiny hands. Portability is the draw of Leña’s take on the slider, served between toasted Cuban buns and stuffed with crispy papitas. Ask for the Cuban flag toothpick topper and give them something to play with once they’ve devoured their lunch.

7. Ice cream at Azucar

Restaurants South Beach

This is an easy one: bring your kid to Time Out Market Miami and let them go nuts at Azucar. Flavors rotate often and feature favorites such as Abuela María with chunks of guava and cream cheese, Café Con Leche mixed with Oreo cookies and flan blended with actual rum. Ok, maybe your kid is too young for rum, but that doesn’t mean you can’t have some.

8. Chicken wings at Pho Mo

Restaurants South Beach

A new addition to the Pho Mo menu, these crispy chicken wings make for a tasty starter to share with the family or a perfectly acceptable, protein-filled meal for one tiny person. They’re fried (who doesn’t love that?) and covered in a sticky nuoc cham caramel sauce that will have them licking their fingers to get every last drop. Sorry, parents.
