Am I the only one...

whose child hated chicken nuggets(still does), french fries, ice cream, mac and cheese when he was little? He truly hated all bad "kiddie foods" thank goodness. It just seems like every kid on here will only eat nuggets and I was curious is any hated them too. LOL

  • All that stuff is just gross. If you look at the chicken meat its like a wet sponge. Maybe your kid is just a foodie with high standards.

  • LOL..when he was like 2 or 3...he asked why there wasn't a bone in it and refused to eat it.

    He is...he always wants to eat where he can buy a $20.00 steak and baked pot. with big shrimp and a broccoli side. Steak medium rare. LOL

  • Glad my kid wasn't the only one. He at 14 does still like some bad food, but, definitely not when he was younger. He also had been known to ask for orange juice while at the fair. He didn't want soda. Now, he really only likes Root Beer. He will eat pizza and burgers. His eating habits could explain why he is only 82lbs. LOL

  • I didn't hate them but I never craved them, never requested them and could definitely live without them. My favorite foods from childhood was my mom's spaghetti and meatballs.

    My oldest daughter loves them, my youngest doesn't like them at all. They both prefer chicken (mostly home cooked) to any other meats.

  • Mine have all liked that stuff (frankly, I always have and still do too) but they also like the healthy stuff, and even some foods that other people think are weird (health foods). It all depends how a kid is raised, what they're given for first foods, IMO, what they'll like as they get older - a very young child who's fed crap is going to grow up liking crap, a very young child who's fed good things is going to like good things.
