So me and DH got into a disagreement argument yesterday and got mad at each other and it all started because of my 5 yr old son. I cooked dinner last night and serve everyone and usually i give everyone the food they eat most. I gave my son enough rice (because he likes rice) and a little of some ground beef. He didn't even started eating his food yet and he was asking for more rice already.
I told him not until he finishes and starts eating his food. (because deep in me i know hes gonna end up leaving most of the food)
my son started nagging and told his dad so his dad told me to give him more, and i said no!!
DH starts saying oh you never make enough rice ect ect...(but i made 2 cups 1/2) I got mad and gave him more and told him u happy now that u got ur way (in a loud voice). DH just looked at me all mad and went to the room.

Did your son eat it all? Sounds like your DH needs to back you up honestly. If your son ate it all and wanted more, then give him more, otherwise, give him only what you think he'll eat without it being wasted, just make sure there is enough made to give him seconds and thirds if he wants it.

He played with the food and left almost half of it.

Your DH undermined your parental authority in front of your son. He's teaching your son that's it's ok to go get another answer if he doesn't like the one he gets from Mom. Not cool.

Yeah, still, totally not cool from your DH. Just like the next poster said, he is teaching your son that if mommy says no, just ask daddy.... and that's not right. Both parents need to be together on things, only disagree in private if there is a disagreement at all.

Well you were the one to cave, so you were wrong in that aspect. If you knew your son wouldnt eat everything on his plate then you should have stuck to your guns. You should have also reminded dh that while ds doesnt eat everything and you already said no and that he needs to wait that he should back you up on that. Regardless if you make enough or not. In the end dh didnt really get his way your ds did all by complaining to dad, who sounded like he didnt want to hear it. And he was wrong as well.
