This is a typical meal at the Lost and Tired house. Granted we haven’t put out the fruit, drinks and veggies but you can see that everyone has something different.
It’s damn near impossible to make one thing that is acceptable to everyone.
Each of the boys has different sensory needs and those needs impact what types of foods the tolerate. I can safely say that I no longer enjoy cooking because it has become way to big of an ordeal to please everyone.
In all fairness though, please is probably the wrong word. They have no control over this and I don‘t blame them one bit.
Having said that, it doesn’t mean I still don‘t get frustrated.
Again, this picture just has the three different main course meals. They hadn’t been served everything else yet. I just wanted to show the three different meals. 🙂

i cook 3 meals also each night one each for my boys so different eating habits and then for me often i eat bad as i too tired after cooking for them
We still have this going on as well, partly because three out of four of us have food allergies. The other part because everyone but me are picky eaters. My husband eats like a pregnant woman, only deciding to eat "what his body craves" (I'm still waiting for the baby to come out of his belly), and one hates anything with or nearby veggies, and thankfully the youngest is outgrowing his pickiness (yay!). We have one friend who's son is ultra picky and eats the exact same dinner every night (butter on white noodles), so they make it for him, but he doesn't get to eat it until he's had a few bites of the same dinner everyone else is having. She says it's taking awhile but it's helping slowly but surely.
