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?

You can't force another person to eat things they don't want. And for your DH, it's a trust issue. If he can't trust you to not fuck with his food, he can't trust you period because of what his exwife did. You need to be more understanding. Making your kids eat healthy food is one thing, but you can't force another adult to do things they don't want to do, even if it's detrimental to their health.

I think if he's going to act like a child then he gets treated like a child. Apparently he needs more therapy to deal with the after effects of his ex. If he can't understand why eating healthy is important to you, himself and your kids and why you had to take these lengths then I think he needs to take some basic health classes.

I hide veggies in food sometimes so we can get more veggies in us. DH doesn't mind.

Seriously, if he acts like an adult and eats sensibly, then you wouldn't have to resort to hiding vegetables in food. His reaction is a consequence of his trust issues, for which he needs counseling. His ex-wife really messed him up.

Tell him if he doesn't like it than dont eat or cook for himself, he isnt married to that crazy person anymore and shouldnt be a jerk or make you suffer for her craziness!

I would tell him to start cooking his own food then. He has no right to hold what an ex did against you.

Just saying, my spaghetti sauce has veggies in it. It tastes SO good like that! I think he is overreacting.
