Do your kids like tomatoes?

Just wondering. I have 4 kids and 3 of them won't eat tomatoes and the 4th, the youngest who is almost 3, is addicted to sweet grape tomatoes. She just came in and wanted a snack and I told her no to everything she suggested (all sweets and such). So she comes back to show me her "matoes". Now she's eating them by the handful. I love them, too, but my other kids won't eat them.

  • Unfortunately, my 3 1/2 year old doesn't. Not sure about my 13 month old yet. She hasn't tried them. So far, she eats everything we put in front of her!

  • They go through moods. Both of mine have always loved them (they're 7 and 4), but the 7 year old went through a time where he hated cooked tomatoes. Then one day he loved them again.

  • My daughter started eating tomatoes at a wedding we attended, I was SHOCKED at the time, she was probably about 20 months at the time, now she is 4 and eats tomatoes all of the time, I still think its so weird, I didn't like tomatoes until I was an adult. She'll eat a big whole tomato any way, I slice it into rounds or wedges or she'll even just eat it like an apple! She also loves the grape tomatoes so I buy 2 pints a week and they are gone in just a couple of days. I'm thrilled because they are so good for her, but again, its so weird! lol

  • When I was a toddler my gramma had a tomato garden in our yard and I'm told I used to pick them off the vine and eat them whole, lol. But as a kid I only liked the cherry variety and thinly sliced on a hamburger.
    You can't leave a tomato out in our house because my youngest will eat it, no matter what kind it is. I slice them up for burgers and come back and they are all gone and the ends have been eaten, too, lol.
    My middle daughter LOVED onions as a toddler/preschooler. She would eat them raw. If I chopped them up for tacos or left slices for burgers I would come back and she would have eaten most of the onion. She's 6 now and won't eat them.
