I was curious to know how many mother's allow their children to be picky eaters?!?!? The reason Im asking is because I noticed these days so many parents allow their kids to be picky eaters. Now when I was growing up whatever my mother feed us we ate. We could not afford to be picky eaters. Even if we was picky eaters no way would my mother let that happen. When she made dinners we ate what she made or we did not eat at all.
I have seen soooo many mother's give excuses for their children saying if I do not feed them what they want they will not EAT I just think that is BS! Cause my mother would not allow us to be picky eaters and I ended up being obese teenager anyways. I ate what my mother cooked for us. Im just trying to understand why Mother's these days allow their children to run their own life and say what they want to have. I do not believe that if you do not feed your child what they want that they will not eat. I think when they get hungry enough they will eat what you made. I just think parents are giving way to easy these days with their kids and letting them be the adults and choose what they want. I will not have a picky eater! Amen!

I didn't until a few weeks ago. I've never had a problem with my son (5), but now my daughter (2) only wants certain things. If I let her she would live off of mac n cheese and Ramon noodles. I was picky growing up, but it's probably because my mom almost never made dinner. It was pretty much fend for yourself. I do make her what she wants every now and then, but when I don't she's learning that whatever I make will sit on the table until she eats it. If she doesn't eat dinner then she gets dinner for breakfast. If she doesn't eat breakfast then she will have it for lunch and so on. She let's me know if she really doesn't like something and then I won't make her eat it, but any other time I do. I don't want my kids to be picky when they get older.
