One Blue Bloods fan had a complaint about the family dinner scenes. He was annoyed the cast members don’t seem to really be eating their food. In past interviews, it was revealed the food served during Reagan dinners is real and the cast members sometime eat. However, this fan was not convinced the actors were really enjoying a hearty meal. “They barely eat any food at the dinner table. It will be like 1 pea on the fork, a sip of water,” posted the fan on Twitter.

Some cast members don’t eat during the dinner scenes, Wahlberg does. He’s been known to eat a lot. According to former Blue Bloods star Amy Carlson, Wahlberg eats the most food. Wahlberg told People magazine that unlike Selleck he really eats, and he eats a lot of food. “Tom just pretends eat, but I’m the only one who really eats. I literally ate 20 pounds of asparagus today. I try to only stick to vegetables, which leads to other problems. Fortunately, we wrapped a little early today so the problems will be personal problems and won’t be affecting everyone else at the table,” joked Wahlberg.
