I think food in restaurants needs to be served not by "adult menu" and "kid menu" but by portions; "Regular" (or Oversized) and Small. You or your child can order (and pay the corresponding price) for whatever portion you want.
I find it almost impossible to eat the full amount of food that I receive at restaurants, and I get pissed off when (on the rare occasion that they offer something other than chicken fingers, a cheeseburger, or a hot dog) I try to order off of the children's menu because I want a small portion for the price of a small portion and am told that it's "not allowed."
I don't really understand that ^^^ They get the same money if a kid eats it or if you eat it, so what's the problem?

Yip, yip, yip in your tiny indignation. Bark furiously on, lady dog.
Apart from the obvious health benefits of eating a manageable portion I'm also very uncomfortable about the amount of sheer waste involved in oversized portions. Perfectly good food is being needlessly
thrown away (after we've paid for it). It also worries me that the food that people DO leave on their plates is often the healthy stuff like the salad, veggies etc. yet they happily scoff down the junk.

Just because you're offended doesn't mean you're right.
I like having a take away portion left! I plan that when I go, in fact!
Then I've got tomorrows supper already. Or lunch. OK-sometimes my Beloved eats it up in the middle of the night!

I don't think there's many doggy bags in Europe because they don't serve that much food, so a normal person can consume it.
I split kids meals between my kids, or order what my kids want and share it. Many times, my children can not wat a whole kids meal on their own. There's half burger left, 1 taco left, whatever.
