Thanks to the University of Illinois’ Body Composition and Nutritional Neuroscience Lab for sponsoring our Kids Eat Free on Halloween listings. The Body Composition and Nutritional Neuroscience Lab is a life span lab out of the Department of Kinesiology at the U of I that studies the relationship between nutrition, exercise, and cognition. Our current study, the BAT Kids Study, is for 4-5-year-old children and examines the relationship between early life nutrition and thinking ability. We are currently recruiting for more participants! Please contact Linda Steinberg at firstname.lastname@example.org or (217) 300-1667 for more information.
Don’t be spooked – but on Halloween night, there are several kids eat free (or cheap) deals at restaurants in Champaign-Urbana. Some of them involve kids in costume, so don’t forget to dress them up! We have confirmed all of these deals, but if you have questions, call ahead. Be sure to read the fine print.
We’ll continue to update these deals as they become available. Don’t forget to check out our regular Kids Eat Free listings!
