    Default Dinner for kids at Inlaws etc

    Am I expecting too much for Inlaws to provide dinner for my kids (1 and almost 4) when the whole family is invited to dinner?

    Both are pretty good eaters and eat petty much anything, granted the baby has trouble with some textures and dry food or things more difficult to chew, but for them to both be completely forgotten about or actually just not even considered is ****ing me off!

    Are you expecting them to make a different meal for your kids?

    I wouldn't expect a different meal, but would expect there to be enough for DS to have a small plate.

    Umm. If the 'family' has been invited for dinner then they should be providing for the whole family... Seems pretty straightforward! What strange people if they aren't bothering!
    When dd was under 1 I used to take some food with me for her to have in addition to what was offered just in case.

    This. I went to a friends for lunch the other day with my 2 girls (3 and 1), I asked if she needed me to bring anything and she said "just yourself and food for the girls". They eat what I eat! But I made them up a packed lunch, which they are then stole everything we were eating too.

    So they don't get given a plate? Do your kids have allergies? If not and they are being overlooked I would be super confused and get two more plates and feed them from mine. In isolation, this is weird!

    That's strange. If they're good eaters and all, I don't see why the kids aren't given a little plate of whatever everyone else is having?

    No, you're not expecting too much.

    What is their deal? Do you think they expect you to bring dinner over for your kids?

    How ridiculous and rude of them. If they are inviting your family over to eat then thats what it is.....the family, adults , kids, whoever lives in your house. I would be super angry if my kids were not feed. I wouldnt expect them to make anything different for them, a small plate of what everybody else is having would be fine.

    I would expect them to be offered what the adults are eating that's all. I wouldn't expect them to make something different as they may be unsure what the kids eat as let's face it, kids can be fussy.

    Nope. Unless your kids are fussy/allergies.

    I do tho generally take food to people's houses if they aren't particularly close.
