Kids Menus - Yay or Nay?

Cuban food!

I am totally torn on the issue of kids menus. My snobby food half wants to agree with the recent NY Times article that derides them for making "blandly tasty foodstuff ... the de facto official nibble of our young."

My overworked, fed-up mom half can totally appreciate the benefits of the kids menu. As I wrote about just yesterday, sometimes kids menus can be a wonderful thing.

My kids are great eaters (this photo is Max eating Cuban food at Cafe 28 tonight), but sometimes a five year old just wants a chicken nugget. Thoughts?? Do you guys like kids menus? If you are at a restaurant without a kids menu, what do you do? (We usually order the kids' dinners from the appetizer section.)
