Family dinner ideas for fussy eaters(3 Posts)
As the topic title suggests, I'm looking for some dinner ideas that we can eat as a whole family - but my two boys are pretty fussy eaters!
We've gotten into a bad habit of cooking dinner for the kids and then cooking again for the adults to eat. I'd like us to all eat together as a family but I struggle to come up with ideas because my kids won't eat the things we would.
Typically they will eat
The youngest will eat Sunday dinner and fish (haddock or cod), the eldest would barely eat mash and chicken, never gravy!
I need some inspiration please🙏🏻

Sausages- sausage casserole? Toad in the hole? https://www.jamieoliver.com/recipes/pasta-recipes/sausage-pasta-bake/ this sausage pasta bake?
Pasta and Bolognese seem to be on the menu- lasagna? Not just a beef lasagne, but veg lasagne, chicken and mushroom etc?
With carbonara , could you use cream and bacon to make a potato bake? Served with broccoli etc?
I know it's a cliched answer but fajitas/ wraps / mezze type meals go down well with my fussy eater- she can choose what she likes whilst the rest of us have some of everything
