Parents, follow this surefire method to get picky eaters to learn to eat foods they think they don’t like.
It helps to tell your toddler that the broccoli is a little tree and give him cute looking portions. It helps to make things fun.
Gee, during the Great Depression and in many countries of the world still today, having "picky eaters" is unheard of. We "suffer" from too many choices and too PERMISSIVE parents. We wouldn't need all these namby-pamby "methods" if parents wouldn't cave-in to their child's whims. Eat what's put on yer plate kid, and be thankful for it! Else, you go hungry. That's a "surefire method" if there ever was one.
Oh that's good, Mr. Rosemond. I like it. Keep it simple and stick by the rules. Mission accomplished.
@jarlmn - Bull. Please don't advocate punishing children if they taste differently than others. I dislike the taste of red meat enough that there were many nights when I opted to go to bed hungry. After my parents took me to a doctor about this, who assured them I could live without red meat, they finally relented to the point where I only had to have one bite of it any dinner it was served. That was still punishment and I still don't eat red meat to this day. I wasn't after a plate of sweets; I was happy to have more vegetables or a lean meat. I just can't stand that nasty metallic taste that all red meat carries.
