The internet is split over a mom who wants to serve “***” food only to her kids

One mother discusses at the end of giving her children a “next food” because they refuse anything remotely nutritious that you give them.

She has expressed her frustration to Mumsnet, under the username Crocsandshocks, revealing that her 7- and 10-year-old has very different tastes from her.

The mother of two asked for the advice in a post published on Tuesday, saying, “I try to make a real effort to cater to my children’s tastes. They are very different from mine.”

“I love curry, thai, vegetable stir-fries, tofu, lentils, etc. I am a vegetarian. My kids have different tastes. They love pork, noodles, Bolognese, and Burge[r]fish fingers, sausages, etc.

Crooksand, who was “cultivating an inner cry,” claimed Shocks, though she doesn’t like to cook meat, does it several times a week for her children.

She tried mixing it up and ordering a meal-delivery group, saying, “I intentionally ordered a flatbread chicken from street food, as I thought they’d like it (I adapted my serving to use mushrooms instead of chicken).

“It took 50 minutes to cook it. I burned my finger in the process. I used up most of my baking dishes and pans. When I was serving it now, one was constantly moaning about toppings on corn. The other rocked his chair and sat with his akimbo legs, pieces of food hanging from his mouth.”

“I was a very sweaty and swearing mess. More than half of each was untouched. I’ve refrigerated what I can get leftovers and am going to sneak it into their packed lunches tomorrow.”

Crooksands’ shocks claimed she was “broken” after they started complaining that they were hungry because she was preparing them for sleep.

“AIBU to go back to *** food? Like frozen pizza and pesto pasta,” I asked.

The post, titled “Fooding Only for Kids?” , can be read here, and has collected more than 140 responses since it was posted on Tuesday.

People gave advice on what Crooksand Falls could offer, as Shipsenmayo asked, “Can’t you keep it simple and do meat and three veggies? And let them put in tomato sauce? I feel as though the kids need some protein/veggies even if it’s a staple meal.” “.

Greenerfingers wrote: “Agreed. Don’t like food, don’t eat. If you’re hungry, you’ll eat. Simple.”

OooErr thinks: “Dictation of food. Many families cannot choose food because of the cost-of-living crisis. They eat what is offered or go hungry. Also unless they are diagnosed with anything, this sensory problem is a ******* . [sic]”

Femfemlicious commented, “Just give them what they want with veggies and salad. Fish fingers are okay.”

Angkat believes: “Just give them food they like, it’s not worth the stress and I absolutely hate wasted food.”

Leoismybae said, “Just cook dinner and put it in front of them. They either eat it or they don’t eat it. Stop pandering.”

Crocsandshocks added in the comment: “I hate wasting food and expensive food now, so I can’t afford to waste loads of food.

“That’s why I might go back to the traditional Icelandic frozen sausage chips, etc…but then I’d worry about their health.”

Crocsanthocks claimed that she did not have the energy to prepare separate meals, writing, “I will not tamper with catering to diminish tastes that change from day to day.”

One NHS in the UK, where the family is believed to be based, advises children aged 6 to 12 years old need five servings, fruits or vegetables a day, along with plenty of water.

She broke down the food groups, saying, “Children should aim for a source of carbohydrates at every meal, as well as occasionally snacks between meals.

“Children should aim for protein at least twice a day. Children over 5 years old should be offered milk either semi-skimmed or skimmed, and should aim to eat dairy products three times a day.

“Healthy fats should ideally be offered to children such as those found in plant sources such as sunflower oil, rapeseed oils and spreads, and not large amounts of fat from pastries, potato chips, and processed products.”

She also advised to reduce sugar intake and stick to low-sugar foods.
