    My DH will eat anything put in front of him. He sometimes mentions that he doesn't like things I've been cooking for years lol. I'm amazed sometimes in the supermarket because he likes some things I thought he hated and hates some things I thought he liked.
    My DD will eat most things, she prefers home cooked meals though I'm also pretty easy to please

    Well my dh used to be super fussy but now the only things he won't eat is tuna, raw tomato, asparagus, pumpkin (but if I hide it in food or don't tell him it's ok), lentil curry and a special type of pork curry.

    But he regularly 'forgets' to serve himself veges or salad so I make one pot dishes where he can't avoid it. And he is not a huge fan of leftovers but doesn't mind frozen/defrosted food.

    2 deployments overseas fixed his fussy food behaviours. Now dh is currently based in melb with the worst mess in the country. Last visit up he demolished my lentil curry. Nothing like hunger to season the tastebuds.

    I'm actually fussier than dh. I don't eat cream (or just lie to me), most ice creams, battered or crumbed food, pavlovas or meringues, any aerated drinks, juice, mashed potato, most pre packaged foods, chips, most take away foods, deep fried foods, mayonnaise, dressings and heaps of cereals. But if it's homemade then I will eat anything.

    Kids don't eat potato, my eldest doesn't like spinach cooked, youngest doesn't like tomatoes.


    But since I'm the chef I cook what suits me.

    My DH won't eat soup, anything "casserole"-ish, anything done in the slow cooker and cooked vegetables (with the exception of potato and corn, he only eats raw veggies). He won't touch pumpkin, capsicum, peas and complains about most green veggies. And then my children have food allergies, so making dinner is somewhat challenging.

    My dh is a 'eat everything in sight' sort of bloke. Though he (and I) have a strong dislike of rocket and fish. Neither get served up in our household. I do, however like my veggies.....he works himself through them quickly to finish off the 'better part' of the meal last - i.e meat.

    DH is afraid of hot food. To the point that I call it beans and rice if I make chilli con carne without much chilli as he wouldn't eat it otherwise 😏 however he is getting better since I've known him and will now eat chorizo and butter chicken as he likes the flavour. Also slightly embarrassed when DS started eating these things!!

    He also doesn't like cooked tomatoes on things like pizza but loves tomato based sauces etc. also doesn't like pumpkin.

    He's not to bad. He will eat things he doesn't love and only once has he had toast instead of what I made, he just asks to not have that dinner again.

    DP is vegan so mainly eats the frozen vegan crap available at the supermarket. I am the fussy one, I don't eat anything tinned, won't eat eggs unless they are totally cooked through, don't eat fruit (I eat raspberries when preggers and that is the extent of it), won't eat any homebrand stuff unless its basics like flour/sugar/oil, no pre-packaged meats like bacon, only eat Australian seafood, don't eat pork or veal, fussy with chicken (no blood vessels, thanks!), no mayonnaise or similar, and I avoid palm oil. Luckily I enjoy cooking, mostly, so can cater to my preferences.

    He also refused to eat meatballs that I had warmed up with some vegetables because he was convinced I had steamed them!
    He won't touch veal if he knows it's veal, or tuna even tho he likes it.
    Anything frozen so I can't precook anything.
    So many things I can't be bother putting down but it sure makes my life so much harder!
    I can see what your dh is saying. Cut up fruit 3 days later would no longer be very fresh, it would be starting to go soggy by this point and would not taste good.

    Where do I start?

    He will eat most fruit and veg so that's good. He won't eat,

    Cold food that's supposed to be hot eg pizza.

    Cheese ,,but he eats hots pizza

    Tuna , ham, bacon , sausages...

    Some crackers

    Sandwiches or rolls in lunchboxes with wet filling as it makes him gag apparently

    Funny enough he has no drama with junk food, fast food etc

    IMO he should make it himself regardless.
