Oh no hun. I remember when I lived at home my mum used to make soups/cassaroles - a version for me with just carrots in as I refused to eat veg. I cant imagine how I made my mum feel having to cook so much (she was also a single parent). I did grow out of this tho and now eat loads of diff veg and fruit.

Im sure your daughter will one day too as she gets older. I'd deff try get her to cook her own meals or at least help in the kitchen with you. What about freezing the food? That way its not a waste and when she next says mum im hungry you can point her to the freezer where the soup you made especially for her is.

I really hope things get better for you. (This place is great for a good vent too) :) x
Poor you, it sounds like both you and your daughter are a bit stressed. I'm sure she realises how much you do for her, and is probably upset with herself for wasting the food. Try not to let this get in the way of your relationship with your daughter, but explain how expensive, frustrating and hurtful it is. It might not be a bad thing for her to have responsibility for planning and making her own meals if she doesn't eat what you eat. My daughter is vegetarian and has made most of her own meals since she was 15. I do the special meals if she is home, but day to day it is easier if she does - because she know what she wants.
hello, what about giving her an amount of money each week to feed herself?
a cupboard each with your own foods in?
may sound a bit ott but she will then learn how to cook/shop/balance ect.
our youngest was similar at that sort of age and when she left home she had to learn to manage/juggle/balance. few years later she can do it a lot better.

think of 'being cruel to be kind'...that became my mantra...after all the rows we are still quite close and pointed out why we were doing what we were to her....so it wasn't just us being awkward with her.

you may be suprised how it all turns out for the better
good luck
