I let my daughter pick out one snack in the store while we're shopping, and the choice sometimes changes as we go from lane to lane.
I also let her pick what we eat for breakfast. It is just the two of us right now, and she always picks something I think is healthy enough for her, so she gets her pick. Usually its eggs and toast, yogurt and dry cereal, pancakes, or oatmeal. I always have all of it on hand so it doesn't matter and lets her pick something relatively healthy and feel good about it.
I'm curious because I'm pretty sure I never had a say in what I ate growing up...lol. There were a lot of us so my mama was not willing to let a thousand kids pull her a thousand directions with food. I'm sure it will be different once I have my own houseful.

I create our menu for the month and every time I create it I ask everybody (children included) what they want for dinners through the week. If we have a couple choices to make for lunches/snacks I will offer it, but most of the time we have the same things.
