For your Child
Children's Wisconsin has free room service for patients. There is no charge for patient food. Hours are 7 a.m. - 9 p.m. The order will be delivered to the room within 45 minutes.
Ways to order room service
- Look at the room service menus. Then call (414) 266-6336 to place your order.
- Order food with the At Your Request® app on the bedside iPad. Learn how to activate the At Your Request app.
- Parents may leave a message between 9 p.m. and 7 a.m. to order their child's meals for the following day.
Some food items may not be allowed if a doctor has limited your child's diet.
Check with your child's nurse before you give them any food or drink. If you have questions about your child's meals, ask to see a dietitian. We do not send food trays to patient rooms without an order.
Children's offers a meal program for parents or caregivers who can't leave their child's room. Parents can buy room service meal tickets at Children's retail food locations and the Gift Shop. Tickets can be used to buy snacks and meals from room service. Tickets are non-refundable.
