Do you give your children food you don't like?

I try to let my child try everything because everyone's tastes are different in some way...

  • Sure. Granted, there isn't much that I don't like, lol, but I'll always let him make up his mind for himself on things like that. :)

  • I give them what they like

  • Yes I do. Just because I don't like it doesn't mean they won't. My aunt would keep food from her kids that she didn't like and now she has very picky eaters.

  • I will be honest and say that I usually don't cook things I don't like for meals, especially if they aren't a "favorite" of someone else in the house, but when we are at potlucks or out to meals, I will make them try new things.
