Nope, no allergies, and nope I don't expect a separate meal. They eat what we eat and if they make something that I know my kids can't eat (basically the only thing I could think of that they couldn't / wouldn't would be an overly hot curry) then I would take something else for them, but I normally don't know what they are serving until we get there.
Last night it was T-bone steak, chips and salad.
I specifically asked hubby to ask if they were providing food for the boys and his dad said yes that they could 'work something out'
When we got there and dinner was served, there were enough steaks for the adults and I was told *i* could share MY steak with my boys.
Don't get me wrong, my boys could eat my entire steak and I wouldn't give a damn, but the point is that i think if you invite people, you should cater for them all.
They know my boys eats anything and everything, yet they just don't cater for them.
My ds2 has 15 teeth at 1 yr old so he's eating what we eat! Luckily I had a frozen meal I could take for him as he likes to eat at 5, and every time we go to Inlaws, despite them knowing this, his dad will wait until HE is ready before he starts serving or cooking food. DH asked him 3 times last night and MIL asked him once to get the food ready asy ds1 was getting hungry. He's also used to eating at 5 but he can wait and he's happy to wait, but by 6:30 he was getting cranky
