Do you make them a separate meal?

Why/why not?

Nope. They are encouraged to eat what is served. If they absolutely do not like what is served they can have a sandwich, cereal or leftovers.

No. The only time I would make them a seperate meal is if I had made some kind of fish (which is about once a year). Other then that they eat what I make.

No. They are welcome to make themselves a sandwich, or reheat some leftovers. But I am not a short-order cook.

They aren't picky, but I also don't cook things they don't like. My kids are older, so if they don't want to eat what I am making, then they find them something else. I do however make my 13 yr old mac n cheese when we have spaghetti because he doesn't like red sauce.

She has to try it at least two bits if she really doesn't like she can have something like a sandwich as for now I'll make for her she 3 can't really make it herself yet but when she gets a little older she can make it herself whatever she wants if she doesn't like what is made

That's easy when you have one kid. When you have 6 to please, it's not so easy, LOL.

No. But they are more than welcome to make themselves something. Cereal is always available. So are hot dogs and PB&J.
