Friday's Food for Thought

Victory over the picky-eater!

Parents often talk about their children being picky eaters and how hard it is to make different foods for everyone in their household.  I have to say, there is an easy way around that problem...don't be a short-order cook!  Make one meal for everyone.  That's it!  There will be a few times where your children will push you and not want to eat what you have prepared.  Resist the urge to give them something else.  If they are hungry enough, they will eat.  Worst case scenario, they will wake up very hungry for breakfast.  But that is OK.  They will not suffer or have lasting emotional scars from this.  They will simply learn the consequences if they choose not to eat the family meal.  Parents often choose the path of least resistance as a way to get through the day (believe me, I completely understand the urge!).  But if you are willing to put in a little more effort in the short run, your life will get much easier much faster.
