DD has a mate over unexpectedly...wasn't planned...doing it to help out the Mum.

All I have in are cheapo pizza and garlic bread, salad and noodles! Would you be shock if that's what your child was fed at a friends?

I usually feed them better than that but I've not been out all day as working!

I'd be fine with anything you fed DD.

Wouldn't bother me at all, they'll probably love it!

You're doing her a favour not like your just feeding her sweets/crap

MrsMangoBiscuit Wed 17-Apr-13 16:01:04

Sounds good to me, I'd just be grateful you'd managed to feed her at short notice.

Skip the noodles, pizza garlic bread and salad is perfect might just have that for myself and dd's

wouldn't bother me at all!

I wouldn't be bothered. It's not like your giving them bags and bags of sweets

That's standard play date fayre isn't it? What on earth do you normally whip up for kid's pals?

Wouldn't bother me at all, I'd be grateful you're helping out.

Sounds lovely. What's not to like?

The mum probably won't even know as I always used to ask my dd what she'd had to eat (nosy) and she rarely could tell me.

MrsBungle Wed 17-Apr-13 16:08:57

Wouldn't bother me in the slightest - I would be very grateful you were helping me out and feeding my kid!

I wouldn't bother with the noodles, doesn't really go well with pizza. The rest sounds fine, pizza with garlic bread and salad is a normal tea in this house.

Is it an unwritten rule that you feed other peoples kids pizza when they are round?

Everytime I had friends round it was pizza served

Whats wrong with it? confused

NeoMaxiZoomDweebie Wed 17-Apr-13 16:12:55

It's all a bit crappy no? Straight out of the freezer! I usually do something nicer..but I will take your words for it! thanks!

After several 'normal" meals weren't eaten by DC's friends, I only ever served pizza, fish fingers or sausages on playdates when they were younger..

Although now i know their friends tastes as well as their own mother, having been feeding some of them for years.

I did a lovely spag bol for one of dds friends-she didn't touch it(was well pee'd), next time it was fish fingers and chips and she ate the lot!

shewhowines Wed 17-Apr-13 16:18:32

Exactly Tilly

Why do people start threads like this? It's just stealth boasting really, no? "Oh, normally I would feed them venison tartare with edamame bean mousse and miso vol-au-vents with roquefort-infused clams ...." etc etc.

There's salad in there, isn't there?! confusedgrin

I normally do pizza when the girls have friends over, as it seems to be the one meal every child eats. Its always a risk trying other things if you don't know the children.

NeoMaxiZoomDweebie Wed 17-Apr-13 16:34:32

Aurora grin Usually I do simple food but fresh things! So maybe some roast vegetables and some chicken or spaghetti bolognaise...more solid food iykwim.

I'm sure her mum won't start a thread about the terrible food you gave her DD.

On the other hand...
