I DONT THINK THERE IS NOTHING FORBIDDEN ANYMORE WHEN IT COMES TO THE MEN AND KIDS OF THE HOUSE, THEY EAT ANYTHING...... LOL!!!!

Quoting mrsnoble2004:

I thought part of the fun in buying healthy cereal was letting them think it was forbidden fruit. If I bought it "for" them, they wouldn't want it.

Quoting LindaClement:

Buy lots. 

If everyone likes it, why are you the only one allowed to eat it?

Dh grew up in a home that was his mother's --not his-- in which he was not allowed to leave his things in the living room, keep the things that were his that he wanted (he routinely came home to a great whack of his stuff missing), and where the food wasn't for the people who lived there, it was for his mother, for his step-father and if they didn't happen to like it much or there was enough so he didn't finish it off (which apparently is a heinous crime), for him.

He learned very early on that he, as a living human being, was nothing more than an afterthought and an inconvenience... and the ranked food was a big part of that.

Before he was 10, he had taken up staying for dinner at a large selection of friends' homes, primarily just to avoid being home. Then he joined the navy (they live in Central Canada, where there is no navy). Shocking? I think not.

Not that I think you're doing that at your house... just that I felt compelled to share dh's story. 

Really: buy lots.

Awesome tactic!!

I often did the same with 'challenging' foods (new, particularly strong flavours) --I made 'enough' for me and dh, and the kids would look at it while I was cooking it and say 'ew, what is that' and my answer was 'it doesn't matter, it's not for you.'

It piqued their curiosity, and as often as not, enticed them to try it.
