I try to cook foods that my kids will eat--my DH is rarely home for dinner, 
so his tastes aren't a factor, and I'm not terribly picky. However, I can 
only handle so much of hotdogs, macaroni and cheese, and spaghetti, so the 
kids have two choices...what I cook, or peanut butter and jelly. I will NOT 
cook a separate meal for a picky kid, and yet my kids WILL skip dinner 
altogether rather than eat, and the 8 y.o. is considered by his pediatrician 
to be underweight. (8 years old and only 41 pounds.) Tonight we are having 
chicken with pineapple, mandarin oranges, soy sauce, and lemon juice over 
brown rice, and I'll bet dollars to donuts Tommy won't touch it.
