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.


Floggingmolly · 17/04/2013 15:59

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 · 17/04/2013 16:01

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


jacks365 · 17/04/2013 16:01

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!


NotSoNervous · 17/04/2013 16:02

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


MotheringShites · 17/04/2013 16:03

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


elQuintoConyo · 17/04/2013 16:04

Wouldn't bother me at all, I'd be grateful you're helping out.
plus maybe one small bag of sweets Smile


fascicle · 17/04/2013 16:05

Sounds lovely. What's not to like?


hillyhilly · 17/04/2013 16:07

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 · 17/04/2013 16:08

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


FeckOffCup · 17/04/2013 16:10

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


usualsuspect · 17/04/2013 16:11

Whats wrong with it? Confused


NeoMaxiZoomDweebie · 17/04/2013 16:12

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.


SillyTilly123 · 17/04/2013 16:17

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 · 17/04/2013 16:18

Exactly Tilly


AuroraAlfresco · 17/04/2013 16:18

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


pourmeanotherglass · 17/04/2013 16:24

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 · 17/04/2013 16:34

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...


Ragwort · 17/04/2013 16:37

I would always give visiting children that sort of meal and wouldn't even bother with salad.

I expect 90% of the population eats like that but daren't admit it on Mumsnet. Grin.
