App helps find child-friendly menus


Sure, date night is a nice break for parents, but what if you want to dine out with the little ones? features child-friendly restaurants in the Boston area beyond a local pizza spot or casual chain. Cofounders Sharon Sprague and Kelly Paszamant both have young children, and wanted them to be able to order more interesting fare than burgers and chicken fingers. Unable to find a reliable source to help them, the two marketing executives decided to build it themselves. Visitors to the free site can sort by ratings, cuisine, price, and neighborhood. Reviews are based on multiple-visits from KidNosh staff, all moms and dads. You’ll find out if there’s a place to stash the stroller and suggested nearby spaces for antsy preschoolers to let off steam. Restaurants that welcome kids while still offering interesting adult menus too are awarded “5 Sporks.” So find a place that will customize your kid’s pancakes and your Bloody Mary.
