Why do some kids not eat the?

crust on the bread? When I make sandwiches for my boys they eat everything but the crust. Is there anyway of getting them to eat all of it? the bread I feed my children is homemade; I don't cut the crust off either

  • my kids are the same way! im not sure why. my 4 year old just says she doesn't like the crust. i try to encourage her to eat it by telling her it will make her hair shiny, but she doesn't care LOL. she's such a dainty eater so im just happy that she atleast eats the rest of the sandwich. maybe as they get older they grow out of this phase.

  • Some adults are that way. I dont eat crust LOL. I think its gross. Some of my kids were the same way when they were small then outgrew it, some didnt. It is just a preference.

  • My girls are the same way. I just gave up on trying to make them eat it. I cut it off without even thinking about it now!

  • My kids don't like it either. If I don't pull/cut it off they will eat the sandwich out of the middle. I'm not sure why, but I don't make them eat it.

  • my ds has never had the crust cut off, so he eats it. i always make sure the butter for his toast is all over the bread, including the crust though...try doing that. i have heard that most of the vitaimins are in the crust.

  • I don't eat the crust on my bread. I don't know why.

  • I think it's a texture thing. The crust of bread tends to be super dry and tasteless. Personally, on homemade bread or Italian and French bread...I love the crust better.
