Dealing with picky eaters...
Closed

Recently we had company for dinner,and I ended up making three different meals because of picky eaters.
When I was growing up dinner was put on the table,if for some reason we didn't like it that was just to bad that is what was being served.Now we are catering to the picky eater, I must say that it is not only children!! When having company you want them to be happy with what you are serving them.However when not giving notice that they don't eat certain things ,I think it's very thoughtless to their host.What if I was unable to prepare something else for them? We like most people are on a budget ,so there is also cost involved.
Had it been me being the picky one, I would have managed to find something on the table to eat and not expect my host to make something else,let alone ask them for something else to be made ! Needless to say they won't be receiving future invitations.

Would you expect your host to make you something other than what was being served?

If someone I know has a problem with certain food, such as gluten intolerance, then I try to fix something that they will be able to eat. If I am invited out for a meal, I do not expect them to fix something special for me.

When WE host dinner, WE decide on the menu. If someone has a reason to prefer something else (usually for purely imaginary reasons), they can bring their OWN food. I do not run a restaurant!
The worst people are vegans of all stripes. They get all huffy and offended that I do not cater to their food fad, but become even more indignant when I bring a steak to THEIR party!
If you are a silly picky eater, stay at home. You are not welcome.

If you don't like what I am serving, TOUGH TOENAILS! It is super rude of your guests, to ask for different things!
If they don't like it, then they don't have to come!

If I'm having guests for dinner I wont prepare something that I know can be iffy for some. For example something really spicy. As far as kids go, I was the same as a kid. Eat whats on your plate or nothing.
With my own children when they were small which I found quite effective was that they had to try everything on their plate and eat all of one. Lots of times kids are just reluctant to even trying some things.

No I wouldn’t; it should only be done for serious health reasons
