  • my Dad, probably. He has a terrible sweet tooth and hates veggies

    my husband and I are good eaters and the kiddos are super adventurous (mmm lamb and polenta)

    as babies/toddlers the kids had a few aversions. I remember it took years to get them to tolerate a single bite of cottage cheese

  •  My 11 y/o for sure.  It's annoying when I have to deal with that.  Since "I'm not running a restaurant" gets said so much, she knows if she refuses to eat what I've fixed, it's a PB & J for dinner.

  • SO is the only picky eater. His " i dont like that" list is long and bothersome

  • I have to say my stepson. My daughter can be picky, too, but I can still enforce the "no dinner, no dessert" rule with her. My stepson got spoiled because he went through so much appetite loss and lack of weight gain from ADHD meds that his parents let him skip dinner and eat corndogs or pot pies just so he would put something in his mouth, and now his "no way" list is a thorn in my side. I'm always worried about what to fix when he comes to stay because if he turns up his nose, my daughter will, too, and it hurts my feelings when he won't eat dinner and thengrabs a frozen waffle or taquitos an hour later.

  • Me. But in a way that's good because everyone else always loves what I cook!

  • My 11 yo for sure! My other four kids are pretty good, my 13 yo will eat anything! But I don't make separate meals. She eats what we're eating or she can make a peanut butter sandwich

  • my 21 y.o. daughter.She doesn't like food with spices not hot spices but most favorable spices.I would grill extra PLAIN chicken and freeze it .She eats several veggies and I try to serve two so as long as she ate 3 small bites of the entree and extra veggie I didn't care if she ate plain chicken 5 days a week with the other veggie I serve.She has expanded what she will eat so when she is home from college she gets a week of her faves...then WE fix some of her faves like baked spaghetti and freezes her meal size portions.She heats up her meals ,eats with us and cleans up her mess...I don't care now.
