When you’re a parent who loves to cook, but your children are picky eaters, your time in the kitchen can get pretty frustrating, especially when your children are capable of cooking for themselves.

One man recently snapped at his teenage daughter, who is extremely picky about what he cooks and critiques everything he makes her.

He and his wife are in their early 50s and have three children. He has a 24-year-old son named Eric from a previous marriage, and his wife has a 19-year-old daughter named Liz from a different marriage. Together, they have a 15-year-old son named David.

He is a big fan of cooking and loves trying new recipes. He’s become the main cook of the house as he enjoys spending time in the kitchen a lot more than his wife does.

All three kids are living at home for different reasons, so he’s been cooking for a full house. Eric is very easygoing and will eat just about anything. The same goes for David, although he’s allergic to eggs.

“I can work around these constraints pretty easily when I cook,” he said.

“Liz is a different story. She has always been kind of picky with the foods she dislikes, but it has gotten way worse. She went to college for a semester and then dropped out, so now she is living at home. While she was away, she developed some terrible pickiness.”

Liz not only has several food aversions but also constantly changes her diet. She’s tried going vegan, becoming a vegetarian, giving up oils, grains, etc. Her eating habits are hardly consistent, and it’s been hard for him to meet her needs while cooking something their entire family can eat.

Liz is especially picky when it comes to foods he wants to cook for enjoyment. Sometimes, it feels like he and Liz could debate for hours about what to make for dinner because he wants to make something that everyone would enjoy.
