Hey KittyKat -
I am a mom of 2 - DD1 is 11, and DD 2 is 8. Many foods that I have the kids and DH also eat just fine - with some modifications. If they have white rice or mashed potatoes, I have mashed cauliflower. If they have baked potatoes, I have a baked sweet potato. We all eat LOTS of raw veggies, and my kids love them. They use dip if they want to - and I just avoid. We all use whole wheat bread and pitas most of the time, but the kids do have some "squishy white bread" in the house.
The kids love hard boiled and scrambled eggs, and no longer realize that they eat turkey hot dogs, turkey meat balls, and turkey bacon. I make homemade spaghetti sauce, and we happen to use smart taste pasta by Ronzoni, not WW. Give and take - it just so happens that I would rather have a SMALL serving of the smart taste than a large serving of the WW, and it does not cause cravings for me, so I let it be!
I make lots of dishes like chicken cacciatore, beef stew, and pork roast with extra veggies, so I eat the extra veggies and limit the other stuff for myself. We also cook on the grill whenever we can - lean steak, chicken, pork chops - whatever!!
I'll keep thinking!
Be well -
