Spain with a Baby or Toddler

Families tend to eat out a lot on vacation, but  highchairs and kid’s menus are rare in Spain, except in the resorts.  Most restaurants and cafes will be able to warm your baby’s milk or food if you’re taking your own.

Baby-changing areas are rare, except in department stores and shopping centres so bring a changing mat with you if possible.

There are plenty of baby and toddler friendly restaurants in the major cities and in the coastal resorts of Spain. The main tourist resorts are used to catering to families and will have high chairs. Many of the restaurants in more tourist centred areas will also offer kids menus and fresh cows milk will generally be available.

Tapas are a good option for toddlers and young children as you can choose a selection of smaller dishes such as potatoes, omelette, chicken, and rice. Toddlers also love the croquettes which are available throughout the country. Bread is also served with meals.
