  • I eat off dd's plate as well.... I hate the thought of wasting food!! I portion smaller for me, let her get her fill then eat what's left! Or we share a large portion. She's 3 and eats about half a toddler portion most of the time. Her biggest meal is lunch so I know about how much she will eat but try to get her to eat more.

  • Make your kids clear their own plates into the garbage before they bring them to the sick for dishes, if they are old enough. Have your husband empty the plates into the garbage before dishes

  • Dump a lot of salt on it so it's not fit to eat anymore. The momet you try to eat it, you'll gag from salt overload. Dish soap works too.
