**I have received 2 messages in the last little bit asking if my kids eat what is on the menu each week. The answer is YES.
Now...Sissy likes to eat Breakfast at school and right now we are 50/50 with lunches but, other than that yes they eat what's put in front of them.
I DO NOT make a separate meal for my children. They may not like all the foods that I cook but they usually eat at least half of it, and that's their choice. I refuse to be a short order cook, or to give in and make them a separate meal of crappy foods(easy "convenience foods").
My kids have a pretty wide variety of foods that they like and the way I got to that point at almost 9 and almost 4, is to just keep putting it on their plate each time I made it whether they want it or not!
I guess the key is to not give up after one offering and them not wanting it! Keep giving it to them and making them try it!
