My parents rate every meal my boys have with them and report back to me. This has never been formally discussed though I wait for it every time, and they have yet to fail me.

A GREAT meal includes eating large quantities of all the foods presented to them and a request for seconds.

A GOOD meal usually includes consuming all or almost all the foods presented to them.

An OKAY meal includes indulging in some of the foods offered to them.

A NON-EXISTENT meal includes eating a few bites of some of their meal and perhaps having a piece of bread or fruit.

Eating protein-rich foods adds some bonus points to the criteria, and eating protein-rich foods which my parents really love like sausage (yes, may be saturated fat-rich as well), gets even extra bonus points.

I’m as puzzled about this system as you probably are reading this, but do other grandparents do the same thing?

I’m just glad they only eat a couple of meals with the boys each week at most.
