A meal that I would love to enjoy with my daughter! My own image.

Do you have your meals with the children - eating the same thing? Or do you make meals for the kids and then have yours later or have something different?

We usually eat together at the weekend and have the same meal. Weekdays are harder as a working Mum and they've usually eaten before I pick them up.
We eat together, but not always the same thing since we have different tastes. For example, if we're having pasta my daughter often likes a different type of sauce on hers from what the rest of us are having, and sometimes the kids just feel like baked beans or toast, which I'm fine with as long as they're eating.
Most of the time we eat most of the same stuff but sometimes the kids pick and choose. We eat together, but rarely sitting around a table.
We pretty much always eat together. I've cleared enough space on our kitchen table so that we can all sit there. If my partner is late getting home he will miss out and have to eat alone. Often we will be eating different things for breakfast and snacks but we have the same (ish) lunch and dinner.
Our son and daughter have grown up and when we get together we have meals together. When they were young they ate what we ate and at the same time.
With our grandsons they sometimes have their meals before us and at the same time. They are almost two and it depends on when they wake up or go to sleep.
It depends on the day and the meal!
Breakfast we have together but very different food. During the week, my son has lunch at preschool and his tea much earlier than I want to eat but I often have a snack whilst he's eating.
At the weekends, we try to all eat together and have the same meal.
I eat with my son nine times out of ten.

We typically eat meals together as a family every night. Same food for everyone. The only time we made something different was when our kids were toddlers.
I believe children should eat at the same table as their parents, this teaches them not to be fussy eaters, also table manners which is sadly lacking in todays society
When our girls were younger we all ate the same meals and together at the table. Now they have children of their own it is different for the one with 2 boys as they have different meals as well as her husband and herself. She is very food conscious and is careful what tgey eat but it annoys me that she panders to their preferences. I often cook meals and give the extras to all daughters but if it's shepherd's pie, her husband won't eat it if it has celery in it and picks it out if he sees it and the eldest son won't eat cooked carrot so his father picks out all the carrot. I won't grate the vegetables because I'm more the traditional style of cook and enjoy the bulk.
We all use to sit and eat the same thing. There were lots of tantrum s as they were very fussy eaters as I was when younger. I felt it's a family thing to sit around the table.
