  • Ive seen kids eat ALL kinds of thing you would thikg they wouldnt. Like Jalepeno's and onions with tomatos and vinegar and oil on them and hoarseraddish. I see nothing wrong with a child not afraid to try new or spicey foods. Parents dont realize they condition their kids to only like certain foods. Give them a no-thank-you helping so they at least try the new food.

  • My kids are half mexican and we give them spicy stuff all the time. Like real tamales with salsa and pickled jalepenos. I let them try it and they really liked it so I give it to them and they eat it!
