When it comes to eating in our house, I’ve never really had to battle with my children. My children were born with a love of food. They love to eat and I’m really fortunate I know. As Zoe is getting older she’s becoming more finicky about some of the foods she likes to eat. Miles however, still likes pretty much everything. I would say he prefers to stay away from green foods but usually changes his mind after he finds out his sister actually likes it.
Now as I was saying about Zoe, she’s developing her taste buds deciding that there are things she doesn’t like. That includes most meats are and a few veggies. She also insists that veggies are not a snack in her opinion. And sometimes she has issues with texture. I hear that’s a common problem with kids. So how do we get her to eat the things she doesn’t like.
We try a few different methods and sometimes none of them work. First off, in our house we have a rule that you eat what mom and dad make for dinner or you don’t eat. Sometimes, she’s fine just not eating and since I know she ate every other meal that day, no big deal. I don’t fight it. Other times, we try really hard to get them to have a no thank you helping. I have yet to actually get them to say no thank you. Most of the time it’s that’s gross mom. I don’t know about your house but we’re a work in progress working to say no thank you.
