    Actual different ingredients, never.

    But a lot of the time 1 or all 3 of them will have theirs slightly different. Sometimes I might pull their meat out before I add the sauce or they will eat the meat with the sauce but their veggies raw. Its easy enough to do and no extra work I just don't throw their veggies in the frypan.

    Never - I only ever make one meal. No way have I or will I cater to everyone's different tastes.

    Having said that, I would vary my meals somewhat while I was losing weight, for instance when we had chicken enchiladas with salad I'd have mine without the enchiladas...when we have spag bol, I'd have mine without the spaghetti and such like. But would never cook a whole different meal!

    Oh hang on I lie...my kids have hotdogs for tea once in a while and I don't like them so I whip up a quick salad or something. That's about it.

    Default Re: How many times a week do you eat a different dinner to your kids?

    Very rarely nowadays unless me and dh feel like something spicy as ds doesn't like spicy food while me and dh love it. When he was younger and I first went back to work I would have meals done up in freezer for him to heat as son as I got home then would start getting our meal ready while he ate.

    Never, I run a right ship here, I'm not a maid, you eat what I give or go hungry.

    On the very odd occasion when DH and I aren't hungry we may just whip something up quick for the kids and feed ourselves later but that's rare.

    Pretty much every night. I don't make my meal until the boys are in bed @ around 6:30pm.

    Every night, DS is in bed around 5pm and that's too early for DP and I to eat, DS has the dinner we ate the night before so while he gets a different dinner to us every night it's always the same as what we ate the night before I that makes sense.

    Maybe once a week when my son goes to his father's for dinner ( where he is generally fed something balanced like frozen spring rolls ). At 2, my son enjoys the same foods I do and is great with spicy food, he will eat curries etc that have others turning red. After working as a nanny, I have vowed that no frozen fish fingers or nuggets will enter our house.. lets hope it continues to go to plan!

    Almost never... on occaisions if he has sports on, i will get DS subway or make him a big banana smoothie so that he isnt eating dinner after we get home at 7ish

    Everytime we cook dinner we all eat the same thing. If we make something super spicey, i will take his portion out before adding cayenne pepper etc. I used to cook two different meals when he was little.. but all it did was make him even more fussy and make my life harder having to cook two dinners.

    For a few years now he eats first and asks what it is later. Never had an issue where he doesnt like what i have cooked. According to DS- i should be on masterchef.
