I'm interested to know how you all handle the different tastes of your children.
I posted a while back about my hatred of beets, and my promise that I wouldn't ever make my kids sit with a food until it was eaten. And I haven't.
But, dayum! It's hard to remember who likes what sometimes.
Nikolas doesn't like cucumbers. Neither does Gabriel. Everyone like raw carrots, no one like cooked. Everyone except Emma likes watermelon. Mackenzie loves mushrooms, but no one else does. Allegra and Mackenzie like tomatoes. No one likes peppers or onions. Mackenzie loves spinach and shrimp. Everyone else gags on them. Emma doesn't like strawberries, or really any fruit except apples. Gabriel despises chicken. Everyone loves yogurt except Riley.
See what I mean?
In our house, you have to try something when it is served. Even if you have had it before and don't like it, I've told the kids that someitmes your tastes change, and you've got to try it. If you absolutely despise it, the fall back food is a pb&j, or soy butter for Gabe and Emma, apple slices and baby carrots. You have to make it yourself, though.
How about in your house?
