Do your kids insist upon having ketchup with everything?!

My 2.5yo and my 15mo ask for ketchup at every meal! Of course I don't give it to them at every meal, only when it makes sense, and I only give them about a quarter size amount. I think it's funny that they think they need it on everything.

  • Mine won't eat anything as a dip. He will eat that on a burger or sandwich, but, won't even dip a chip.

  • My son is 14 months old and cant ask for it yet but he looves it. That and ranch. Hes just a sauce type of kid. And he likes to dip everything. If he doesnt like something i just add ketchup or ranch and he will eat

  • No, but I do :) I've always been a ketchup junkie!! My son doesn't ask for it but sometimes when he won't eat I'll squirt a little bit on his plate just cuz he likes to dip his food, and then he keeps eating lol.
