I have watched my kids blurt out on many occasions, “mum I’m hungry,” and then I would say ok, "make a sandwich."
Sometimes they make it, but other times their countenance changes. They're either not as hungry anymore, or they plead with me to make it for them lol.
I sometimes respond, “you weren’t really hungry then, because if you were, you would hurry on and make that sandwich!”

I will go a little further and say, what if this was a potluck style dinner, and you could only eat what you prepared?
Would you take your time and prepare a dish?
Buy it, or have someone else prepare it for your you?

A sobering question yes, but one that deserves a true response.
