#Meal planning Monday 13/02

Hi folks! How can it be Monday again already?

This menu planning is harder to do than I thought. Not impossible, just hard. The difficulty is this. Picky teenage/pre-teen kids and fussy food fads. One week they like something, next week they don’t. Son number two loves sausages. Son number one hates them. Son number one loves roast chicken. Son number 2 doesn’t. One likes fish. One hates it with a passion. I could go on but I won’t – you get the picture! 

It’s a challenge but I’m not going to let it put me off – I’ve started making whatever I want and if the boys refuse to try it, I just tell them they can make themselves scrambled eggs/beans/cheese on toast. They are old enough to make themselves something else if they don’t want what’s on offer. I refuse to get into battles with them over food. I find it exhausting and trying to force them to eat it doesn’t work anyway. 

Do you have fussy eaters in your household? How do you deal with it? I’d love to hear your tips!

This week’s menu is pretty much centered around what I know my boys will definitely eat without question and what I have to use up in the freezer. I’m trying to empty my freezer and cupboard before I do a big shop at the end of the week.

Monday – Just me and the boys tonight so I’m making a quick and easy pasta carbonara.

Tuesday – Tattie soup and oatcakes

Wednesday – Burgers, sweet potato fries and salad

Thursday – Chicken wraps

Friday – Home made pizzas

I’m not sure about Saturday and Sunday so I won’t meal plan yet.

  1. Ahh! I have two fussy kids….They say they don’t like what I am cooking but then end up wolfing it all down. lol They have learned from the many times I have said “if you don’t eat it, you go without”….I like the sound of Tuesday’s Tattie soup x

    1. Thanks, it’s really popular in our house! Yes everyone liking different things is proving to be a bit of a challenge, but I won’t give up! It’s frustrating because when they were very little they would eat pretty much anything. No problem, already thinking about next week’s meals 🙂 x
