Couldn’t you have given the kids a sandwich then so they didnt need to go hungry? Tell then to try a teaspoon of the meal you made and then they can have a sandwich

Not really, it’s just a sandwich and not a whole ready take out meal or whatever. A sandwich so the kids don’t go hungry but they still have tried an itty bitty piece of the food first to try new flavours. You don’t know what the food was, maybe it was all fish and those kids don’t like fish, do you always get to eat something you really don’t like? And you don’t know how old the kids are either. A small little sandwich is always part of the meal. This is the way pedagogues always used in kindergartens over here

You start BEFORE the tantrums start.

"Hey kids I'm making *this*. I know you usually eat junk, but I'd like you to try one bite before I give you something else."

When the tantrum starts, you don't feed them until they are done, and they will HAVE to try at least one bite..

It isn't giving in. You've got to learn to outwit them.

um, I have two unspoiled children who I cook home cooked meals for on a daily basis and they don't want to eat it then they don't have to. my kids are picky it doesn't mean they're spoiled or brats and it certainly doesn't make us bad parents. my children don't starve, they're kids and they're not gonna grow up fat sluggish with eating problems. jesus.

no, you are the parent and cooked a meal. if they dont want to eat it they can go hungry for a night and learn some gratitude and respect for what you do.

I have twin nephews who used to be like that. I couldn't figure out why they weren't getting hungry when they didn't eat; then I realized they were stuffing their backpacks with candy before leaving home. New rule at my house, no candy until meals are over. Had a couple of days of terrible attitude, but they eventually learned that even though the tacos, hamburgers, sloppy joes, and pasta that I make didn't come out of a box in the freezer, they aren't completely inedible.

Easy solution. They want a night off in the future they make alternate arrangements as you no longer look after their children.

What did you make? How do you know if they liked it or not? How old are the kids? How long did they stay with you?

Frankly sleepovers I wouldn't try to make someone else's children eat something, especially if I don't know if they like it or not. It'd be all about the kids. Next time make what they like and see if they'll snack on something healthy.
