Making sure the whole family eats well can be tricky, especially when you’ve got loads of little mouthes to feed.
But, that task gets a million times harder when a fussy family refuses to eat the same meal as one another, meaning whoever is in charge of food has to cook up several different meals.
While some parents wouldn’t dream of pandering to fussy kids, one mum has found herself cooking three separate meals every single evening in order to cater to everyone’s needs.
However, the savvy mum has come up with an easy for solution for those nights she simply can’t be bothered to cook different meals.
Instead, she has ‘dinner platter’ evenings, where she simply puts on a buffet of mini sandwiches, pieces of fruit and other bits her children like, so they can simply pick and choose what they eat.
“I try to keep them simple and cost affective seeing as we all eat different meals,” she explained on Facebook, as per the MailOnline.
After sharing her solution on social media, the busy mum was heaped in praise from some parents, however others insisted she should be focusing on stopping her children from being fussy.
“I don’t have the time, patience or money to make separate meals,” one person commented, while another suggested children should eat what is in front of them.
However, the mum responded: “I understand some people use the old ‘eat what you’re given or starve’ and that’s completely fine. I don’t disagree with anyone, I myself am my own person and I like to do it this way.
“I didn’t ask for hateful comments saying I will ‘regret’ my decisions. I’m happy if my family are happy.”
It sounds like a simple and effective solution to us.
