  • Yes. They are expected to eat adult food at our house, and when we go out to restaurants, we do not order them chicken nuggets or other "kid" foods.

  • 99% of the time. If its something that my 2yr old won't eat(spicey, etc) I will modifiy his meal. My son is not a picky eater. I think this is becuase I have always offered him a varity of tastes, textures, and so on since he has been able to eat reg. food. I am NOT a short order cook. LOL

  • Yes I did and they're all healthy. Grown up now but still healthy. I don't see it being a big deal as long as they are old enough to chew, and digest table food.

  • I guess we tend to do about 1/2 the time. He has some texture issues so I won't MAKE him eat some things but he's a pretty good eater otherwise.

  • 99% of the time. At least once a month the kids will get a sandwich and I will cook a 'date' type dinner for just the two of us after they are in bed.

  • Yep, this is not an all-night diner and I am not a short-order cook.
