Yep, my kids wasting food drives me nuts. I often wait until after the kids have eaten dinner to eat mine, I can often put together a good little low cal dinner out of it for myself. I did that tonight. Though I totally shared the steak with the cat.

I have a pet dog. If my daughter doesn't eat all her food or I've had enough, I give the leftovers to the dog. He's stoked for the treat and I don't feel bad about it.
Your friend's dog works just as well.

Hahaha my aunt and grandparents used to periodically bring leftovers to my family dog when i was a kid.

We also keep a compost, so food waste doest going to waste, instead it becomes food for the garden

Also my dad will eat just about anything inside of a tortilla with salsa, which is how my mom usually deals with leftovers

I don't want my kids to suffer the "clean your plate or else" treatment I got that led to my overeating past the point of being full. I'm sure this contributed to my BED. 

 

However, I can't stand throwing anything away, so I finish my entire meal, sometimes get seconds, and then finish what my little ones and wife pass on. Bad cycle.

Sometimes it bothers me, but I try look at it like this... I'm not going to treat my body like a garbage bin. The food can go in an actual garbage bin, thank you very much.
