Do you make them a separate meal?
Quoting Lorelai_Nicole: No. They are welcome to make themselves a sandwich, or reheat some leftovers. But I am not a short-order cook.

If they don't like what I cook, then they are free to make themselves a sandwich. I usually only have that problem with my oldest son who is VERY picky and likes nothing.
I don't have kids at home but we do keep our grandson and if he doesn't like what I make, I will make him something else. It's just not worth the hassle or arguement because he doesn't like it. Most of the time when he's here, I make kid friendly food I know he likes.
2 bite rule here you have to take 2 bites of everything on your plate
Quoting Cmgmqmmom: If I make something I know my kids won't eat (which is rare) I would make them something else. However, I just usually make food we all like.
If they refuse to eat what I make and it's normally something they'd eat, they go to bed without. That happens almost never.
Quoting coolmommy2x: If I make something I know one or both them do not like, I'll make them something else. If they usually like it but don't want it or suddenly don't like it, they can have cereal and have to get it themselves.
If it is something both my kids don't like I will make them something else but other than that I hate too b.c then they expect it all the time. My daughter is already a picky eatter!
