The simplest way is to;

    all_meta_types=meta_types=({'name':'Sub Object1',
                                'action':'manage_addSubObject1Form',},
                               {'name':'Sub Object2',
                                'action':'manage_addObject2Form',},)

In your 'base' product.

If you don't register your sub objects in __init__.py you will also
need to import their 'constructors' into your base class, and explictly
declare the icon under misc_
