Depending on the size and price of the meal, you might get more bang for your buck this way. Over at, Sarah Robinson writes:

A friend of mine orders one large adult meal for two to three of her kids to eat at a time. It ends up saving them several dollars per order and they typically have more than enough to eat as well.

Again, your savings will vary depending on the price of the meals. If your kids have big appetites or they’re not willing to share a meal, it may not be the best deal. Still, it’s a simple option to consider if you’re looking to save some cash. For more tips for saving money at restaurants, head to Robinson’s full post.
