Question Sharing Meals

DH and I will have the DxDP for our upcoming trip, my Mom will be joining us for a few meals but she eats VERY little. Typically when we go out to eat she eats a little off our plates and is full. My question is will this be okay if we are using our credits for our meals to just give her some of ours? I know at some restaurants she will likely also have a soup or salad or a small side that we will pay OOP for but just in case she’s not in the mood for it I don’t want to get in trouble if she eats from us. TIA!

Edited to add:
If it helps the reservations she will be joining us on are:
Boathouse (lunch)
Sanaa (lunch)
Narcoossees (dinner)
Yak & Yeti (lunch)
Kona (breakfast)
Enzo’s hideaway (lunch)
Cali Grill (dinner)
Via Napoli (lunch)

The only places that will not allow sharing are family style and buffets. Everyplace else there should not be any problems. I know that's been my experience with the typical TS places.

I’m a bit uncertain based on what you say what exactly the situation is as well as not knowing how familiar you are with the ins and outs of the dining plans.

Is your mom staying on her own separate reservation? Or perhaps lives near WDW?

If she is staying on your reservation, you will be paying for the DxDDP for her, too, and could have unused credits unless eating at a lot of Signatures to use them all.

Sorry if I’m telling you what you already know but wasn’t sure you’re aware that everyone listed on your room reservation even though in a separate room must be on the same dining plan.

She will have her own room and no dining plan. She is 75 and has an extremely small appetite so typically she eats a small meal and has an ensure (nutritional shake) on a daily basis.
We have used the regular dining plan for DH and I many times but this will be the first time having someone eating with us that doesn’t have a meal plan or that doesn’t eat a full meal. For example my mom could have one slice of pizza at Via Napoli and not want to eat anything else the rest of the day so to pay for a full entree when we will have so much food ourselves seems like such a waste. There is also the possibility we will get to a reservation and she will not want anything at all as this has happened at some of our local restaurants. Hope this information helps!

Sounds like the solution is to let her use snack credits for small items like soup, or pay out of pocket for some small item. It is not unusual for people to share meals or to just order soup or an appetizer rather than a full meal. As noted, buffets and family style service do not support sharing so you would still need to pay for her even if she ate very little. None of the restaurants you listed fall in those categories so she should be fine. And yes, you can use your meal and snack credits to feed your mom.
