Default Kids and food

I have three kids. My youngest, a boy (16) eats everything and loves meat. My second child, a girl (19) is a vegetarian. She has been since she was eleven. My oldest daughter (20) is a vegan for about three years now.
I think you can imagen this drives me totally nuts sometimes

The oldest however, also has an eating disorder, and now get help from a psychologist and someone who knows a lot about food (I don't know the word for it). She now is vegetarian since a few months, so it will be a bit easier to overcome her eating disorder.
Can you imagen a vegan who doesn't like vegetables? Makes your life hard

My husband is very willing to skip is meat for about three times a week, my son isn't. Me, I'm kind of flexible. I can do without meat very well, and I prefer not to eat meat, but I won't make any trouble when we have a meal with some meat in it.
My daughters, however, refuse to eat meat at all!
It must have been years, and years that all are meals were a constant battle about what was on their plates. Especially the girls didn't let a change go by, witouth letting their dad and brother know what they were actually eating, what the animal had looked like and how it was treated during his life.

I must admit it drove me crazy, and I longed for a pleasant meal again. Just sitting at the table without fighting, but enjoying my food with laughter and fun.

So I decided, that whenever I cook, I will not allow any complaints. No arguing, no fights, no nothing. I don't care anymore if they eat, they sit at the table and behave. When they do not agree with the food that is on the table, they can make sure they get their own food after dinner. They will have to buy and cook it themselves. I only buy and cook food one time a day!

It worked. Not all of the time, but most nights we sit at the dinner table now as a family, enjoying the food and each others company .
