    Occasionally. If we are having something spicy or something a bit special jasper won't eat and I won't waste my time.

    My 3 eat too early Monday to Friday and also I don't like the food they will eat so DH and I eat something different and we eat later. Except for weekends when we all eat dinner as a family and then it's something we'll all eat.

    That said we always eat breakfast together. I knew an Indian family who said in India the goal is one meal a day eaten together as a family so we focus on breakfast as Monday to Friday we aren't able to sit down altogether (DH gets home too late).

    I wouldn't say different dinners but sometimes ds or I will have something extra. I don't like pasta so he will have spag bol with pasta and I have just the meat. I'll make a salad and he eats the simple things and then I add my seeds and tofu to mine whilst he will have a chicken skewer. Some Friday nights we will have a takeaway and we eat different things or I will make a sandwich whilst he eats Pad Thai. I'm too lazy to cook 2 different meals but I don't expect him to eat veges that he doesn't like. I just give him the ones he does.

    i said once a week.
    but we're a semi carnivorous, semi-vegetarian household. And the kids will always eat what's provided.
    but i'll occasionally end up having a second dinner of HJ's or M-D's.

    So its well and truly more about me being mean and eating food behind their backs, than them being finicky and annoying LOL

    Well DS1 has FPIES to chicken meat. So normally every second night we eat something different to him. He will have left overs from the previous night so we can eat chicken.

    Rarely, maybe once a week and thats probably because we get takeaway after shes gone to bed.

    Well every night I give my son what I am having for dinner. 6 nights out of seven he flat out refuses to eat it, so most nights. :-(
