I usually cook 2-3 different meals, 1 for hubby, 1 for me and 1 for junior. All of us eating the same thing is pretty rare around here :lol: .

I know i'm not a parent but i think this question i can still answer :lol:

When I lived with my ex, I would ALWAYS have something different to him, but that was the case even before my diet. Often he cooked his own meals so I didn't have to cook 2 meals. Maybe get hubby to help you in the kitchen some nights to make something him and kids can eat while you have something healthier? And sometimes then make them eat the healthy things just so its a balance for them.

I cook the same meals for my partner and me. He's a saint to put up with it, really. He's an omnivore and I only cook vegan food. Now it's low fat vegan food on top of that! :lol:

Im not a parent either, but i see my mother sometimes cooks 3 different meals for me, my brother and my dad who have different tastes as well as diets. She herself would be fine with anything :D. And usually i have to cook for myself as she cant have enough time to make 3 dishes at the same time. Housework is pretty tough, isnt it ? :)

Sounds like I am really lucky, I only need to feed my own stomach :twisted:
But when I had my partner over here, he always ate more than me, used to always insist eat the same food and eat together. :mrgreen:

I now cook things I can freeze so that if my husband just doesn't want to eat the healthy dinner I've prepared, he can go thaw something and eat that. I've found that works really well for me.

No way am I cooking different meals for everyone - but we might all have different variations of the same thing. For example, if I cook marinated steak, chips and veg, the girls (2 and 4) will have plain steak no marinade, hub will have the lot, I'll have no chips and the twinfants (6.5 months) will have the veg mushed. Same, same but different keeps everyone happy!

During the week my wife makes 3 separate meals. One for the kids, one for her and one for me. I get home too late for her to wait to eat. Plus I like to have fish and spicey foods, and she won't touch either. Though she'll usually make one big meal for me and freeze the leftovers so I just heat them up the next couple of nights, or take them to work for lunch.
