If your child doesn't like what you make for dinner... ?

Do you make them a separate meal?

Why/why not?

That's right! There have only been a few time that a kid didn't like something I made, but that was them not feeling well.

Quoting Lorelai_Nicole:

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

Nom they can eat what I fix or not eat. I don't make separate meals because they want to be picky.

 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.

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.

I cook dinner everynight for 5 kids. They are required to eat the meat and at least 1 out of 2 sides. I don't have time to make 5 different meals.

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!
