Default How do you charge for children when catering?

How do you charge for children when catering? Is it not at all, half price, full price or some other method?

I sell by product, not age of consumer. I always have hotdogs cheap for kids so family business stays friendly.

I usually ask number of kids, number of ladies, and then go for a head count and suggest about half for the kids then we agree on a number to cook for then I do about an addition 5 heads for overage. I always have way more than I should because I would rather run long than short it saves on the your trying to cheat me conversation at billing time.

Are you products made with real children? Or, are you using cheap, imitation children?

ha! I always laugh when the buffet discounts my 3 boys. They could put you out of business. But I guess it makes up for paying full price for my wife and daughter who, together, don't put away nearly as much as one of the boys!

I was thinking it depends on the number of them, and their weight. If there's just 2
small kids, it wouldn't take much too cook them. However, a few good sized boys
and we're talking an all day Q... $$$$$$$
