My dh is mad because I hid vegetables in his food.

Posted by   + Show Post

Ok, I am trying out new things to get my kids to eat healthier, my husband does not eat healthy either, will not eat vegetables, just like a kid... Well, last night I made spaghetti and puréed some squash, zucchini, and carrots and mixed it in the sauce so you couldn't taste it. It was a huge hit, everybody loved it. Well, this morning I told dh that I had hid vegetables in there and now he says, oh, that was the after taste... If I hadn't said anything, he wouldn't have known... Well, his ex wife tried to kill him and herself by poisoning his food. They were together for only a year, I have been with dh for 3 years and he knows I would never do such a horrible thing... So, he says if I hide vegetables in his food again, he won't eat it. Is it my fault for not telling him because I want him to eat healthier and that's the only way I know how to it? Or is he in the right for me not telling him what's in his food?

Oh, you don't know the half of it. Getting him to take his cholesterol meds and a multivitamin is like pulling teeth! He said he did like what I made, until he found out there were veggies in it. I have told this to him before, but it doesn't matter.

Quoting emarin77:

Lol, I would acknowledge what happened to him in the past but state that you are not his ex but someone who wants her family to be healthy.  Ask him if he liked what you made.

Yes, thank you!! I have tried and tried to explain to him I just want him to eat healthier to live longer! I might let it slide for a couple weeks, then do it again without saying anything.

Quoting earthangel1967:

 I can understand why he is paranoid due to what his ex wife did, that is  pretty traumatic!

However you are just trying to take extra tlc of him and help him be healthier and live LONGER so out of love I would still do it since it's in his best interest but I wouldn't mention it ever again.

 I'd tell mine I'm going to be hiding veggies in the food for our childrens sake and if he doesn't want to eat it then he can make his own damn food.

I don't hide veggies. You eat them or you go hungry.

You could always make him go hungry for a few days... :)

I can understand where he's coming from but I would keep doing it and keep my mouth shut. If you know he won't taste it then whats the harm

 I think that' a good idea. I don't consider the sneakiness doing something wrong when you are just taking good care of him because he wont and he cant tell the difference unless you say something which I  woulnt do anymore, anyway. So you are only helping him
