See I don't think that allowing them to go get an alternative as being a short order cook. They go get it and I make them clean up after themselves, all but DS of course.

I also don't mind doing things like when I make pasta I set some aside without sauce for DD2 who doesn't like sauce and just wants butter on hers or when I'm making fish sticks or chicken strips, one kid won't eat fish no matter how hard I try to convince her it's good and one prefers it over chicken, so I throw a few of each on the pan, the bake at the same temp for the same amount of time anyways.

Maybe if it were happening all the time I'd feel differently, but my kids are generally so good about eating what I serve that when it does happen I don't think twice about letting them eat something else.
