I think your plan is good. Give them more fruits and starches and they will come out of ketosis.

you are not going to win them all. You just have to win enough. Be firm and consistent at home. I got enough out of it that my daughter ( going to college in 2 years) will eat eggs, parmesan, broth, and some vegetables every day.

Cheating shouldn't stress you out. If you want the ice cream, then eat it. Just don't indulge in the stuff all the time. Isn't there an 80/20 rule?? You can cheat 20% of the time? I'm not sure.

Get the liquid kind and hide it in ....anything. Smoothies, poured on veggies, poured over a burger, slip it in their juice. It's pretty easy.
