No picky eaters here
Now that my son is eating finger foods we've been trying to feed him the same things we eat. In the hopes that exposing him to it now will make introducing new and different foods easier as he grows up. But I also intend to reintroduce the dinner rules I was raised with:
1) Mom only makes one dinner
2) You have to try everything on the table, even if you have had it before
3) If you say yuck, or something similar, you will get a second helping
What kinds of rules do you have to help you kids eat better?
I also will have the rule that you have to be polite about the food you're given - even if it's not your favorite. Somebody worked hard to give you that food and you should respect that, especially at other people's houses. Give it a try and if you don't like it quietly eat around it. Don't fuss or say it's gross!
