David has his meals at nursery so he's catered for. Just us we need to worry about really. On weekends, David has his food early, as we are late eaters anyway.

i do cook seprate meals, but the tends to be because the gurls eat there tea between 4~5ish and they all eat the same, the way i see it that u get wot ure given , in not a cafe ..LOL ....and the hubby works till 7pm so cook for us about 8ish...to late i know...but when he has his days off i do try i and get uss all to sit at the table at the same time and we all eat the same, if they dont eat they dont get a pudding simple as, dont get me wrong if they really dont like something i dont force them , but they are expected to try stuff ....and not look at is and say straight away ''errrrr i dont like that '' wiv out even trying .
sorry if that seems a little harsh.

I totally agree. Unless it is something new, and they might genuinely not like it, then if they dont eat it they get nothing else! Going hungry till the next mealtime isnt going to do them any harm!! LOL

We all eat the same. I tend not to make things unless we all like them.

We all have the same, don't want Caitlin growing up to be a fussy eater, if she doesn't eat it then not my fault LOL. Yes I am mean but I don't care LOL. I think eating early, not supposed to eat after 6. I only cook different things if I don't have alot of food left. Plus I think its better to get all together.

I usually cook everyone's at the same time, if it isn't eaten they don't get anything else. If we are having take out or something we know the kids don't like then I will do two lots but usually still sit and eat together.

Charlotte is fussy. She is a pest at meal times. She is getting slowly better, we have moved a big step now, she will try a couple of carrots although most veg is a no no still. George also is picky with veg but he at least gets it in his mouth and chews before he decides he doesn't like it LOL!
