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?
