So...What yall do when your kid refuses to eat the food that was prepared for them at dinner?


To what extent do yall enforce a 'Must eat everything asked to be put on plate' rule?

Or is that not even a rule for yall?

I know when i came up my Mama used to make me eat every piece of scrap on the plate, even when i didn't like how it tasted. I never resented them for it, but i always ended up doing it.

    I never FORCE them, because I know as a kid I hated to be forced to eat something I hated.

    Sometimes it's not their favorite meal, but they'll eat it.

    If they hate it, it's always a PB&J as a second go to.

    Forcing kids to eat EVERYTHING on their plate every time is not a good practice.

    I usually cook her something I know she'll like, but if not I have a one bite rule. She has to try it at least.

    I wouldn't force them, my kids gonna get hungry at some point....they eat in an hour or so whether its their favourite or not...Microwaves.

    Point being, if they hungry and that's all that is being offered to them, eventually they will eat it...sweeten it with a promise of a lovely meal the following day.

    If you don't eat go to bed hungry. You got kids out there not eating at all. That normally works for me.

    let's say there's some pasta and veggies that was prepared and put on the plate, as the child asked for it.

    to those of you who say yall wouldn't FORCE them to eat foods, does that apply in the case where you gave the option to leave it off the plate, but they still asked for it? and by force do you mean you don't make them sit at the table till they finish the portions given to them even when you know they can?

    This.

    Unless the kid has a food allergy of some sort, you eat what's put in front of you. Y'all too damned soft on these kids. You keep giving them a way out of shit and that's all they're going to ever do; look for the easy way out.

    When I was a kid, you ate or you starved/got your ass whooped. There was no such thing as wasting food. We were taught to be grateful enough that we even had food on the table where others did not (even some in our neighborhood).

    Fuck that. Eat ya food.

    My daughter is 6 and my son is 11 months.
    My daughter is a very picky eater and she changes up every other week or every other month.
    Like when she was 4 she loved Chef Boyardee Ravioli and when she turned 5, she flipped to Chinese food.
    So what i do, when I cook I choose food that I know she likes at that time and she will eat it.
    Like right now she loves green beans, mashed potatoes, macaroni and cheese, grilled chicken and brown rice.
    The best thing to do is figure out what the child likes and make that until they switch up.

    Lol@ having options. We had one of two choices in my childhood: eat what was cooked or eat nothing at all.

    Forcing a child to eat food they don't like will most often cause them to have an aversion to it in adulthood.
    I don't force any food upon him but he must have a certain amount.

    Getting creative with veggies and incorporating them into foods helps opposed to setting them flat out on a plate in plan sight.

    I really don't think this has ever been proven.

    i've had some wars with my youngest nephew.

    to the point that i told this 12 year old boy that, if he dont eat his food, im gon take great offense as i will see it as him disrespecting my woman. we aint have a problem out of him as far as that went till his punk ass momma came to visit and he sat there acting like i wouldn't dot his damn eye.
    i started walking around that damn counter towards him.... he shoveled that fucking salad into his mouth.
