I used to say, “My daughter is a really good eater!”

I used to think, “Oh, I feel sorry for those parents who have to practically force feed their kids fruits and veggies. How awful that must be!”

And now?

Now I say, “Eat the rest of your beans. Eat five beans. Fine. Just eat one bean! Just. One. Bean!”

Now I think, “Surely she won’t starve. Right? She’ll eat when she’s hungry. RIGHT?”

So, any tips? I’ve tried being firm, being flexible, threats, ignoring the issue, yelling about the issue, using dessert as an incentive, not using dessert as an incentive – everything.

How do you all get your kids (or someone else’s kids, I’m not picky here) to eat?

What should you watch next?


Every month, we are bombarded with new TV series and movies—and it can be overwhelming to figure out what to watch! (I know, I know, what a problem to have!) I'm here to help. My monthly Watch Guides list out all the returning series, new series, and new movies, along with premiere dates and where to watch them. Plus, I tell you my personal picks for the month to help you narrow it all down.

Drop your name and email here, and I'll send you this month's Watch Guide right away!

(Signing up gives me permission to email you. But I will never, ever send you spam or junk. Who has time for that?!)
