Raising kids today might just be the most expensive job you’ll ever love.

From the moment a child was born in 2013 until the day he or she flies the nest, the average parent will spend $245,340 on child-rearing costs, according to a study from the U.S. Department of Agriculture.

Many parents probably secretly wonder if half of those expenses go to food alone!

No doubt, feeding your offspring is expensive — the third priciest aspect of raising kids, after housing and child care/education, according to the USDA. Costs are especially likely to be high if your family likes to frequent restaurants.

But if you plan your schedule carefully, you can get free or very low-cost meals for your children by visiting a restaurant on the night that it offers a kids special.

It is crucial to remember that these deals change quickly and may not be around forever. In addition, offers vary by location and may not be available in all regions. So,it is best to call ahead and check with your nearby location.

But as of right now, the following nine restaurants offer low- or no-costs dinners for children at least one day of every week.
