Hey there, I came across this website when I was googling for some information regarding an issue I have. Hopefully I can get some advice! I have shared care of my 2 daughters 7 and 9 and have a partner of 1 year who also has 2 girls of a similar age. The girls get on OK and we have discussed moving in together. However there is one seemingly minor stumbling block that is causing more and more issues. My ex and I have always had good diets and our kids have good diets, lots of fruit veggies, salad plus their diets are varied and they like to try anything. They even eat stuff I wouldn’t touch – raw sea cucumber for example! However my partner and her children have very poor diets, fruit loops or bacon sandwiches for brekkie, dinner is generally stuff like chicken nuggets and chips or burgers plus ice-cream. Snacks are readily available all day chocolate, chips etc so often meals will be left barely eaten, they eat very little salad or veggies and the only fruit they eat is strawberries. This is causing havoc at mealtimes, they rarely eat what I cook, they will refuse to eat salad and vegetables and now my girls are following suit. Breakfast time, the only thing my partners girls will eat is fruit loops or frosties, now my kids refuse to eat weetbix, muesli or anything remotely healthy insisting it’s not fair, which I guess its not. But I’m not sure what to do. I really don’t want my kids to subsist on a daily diet of junk. I’m happy for them to have chicken nuggets and chips, for example, on an occasional basis, but not every day. Although this may seem like a minor issue, we are now having dramas every time the 4 girls are together at meal times and I can’t see a solution. Therefore I am really reluctant to move in together, which is causing issues with myself and my partner. My ex-wife is also unhappy about the kids having more and more junk food. If I’m still at work, my partner will feed all 4 kids and invariably it will be junk food. Any help would be appreciated.
