Like you said, lucky for you that you liked most things.<quoted text>It's nice living in a country where kids can be that picky.
My parents had no problem telling me I'd eat what they served and like it. Lucky for me, I liked most things, but when I didn't it didn't matter. And I kinda think that's how it should be. I know, I know, easier said than done and all that, but still....
Our pediatrician told us when Ry was 2 that if he was hungry enough he would eat. He went 4 days without eating. Later, when we tried to get him to try things he didn't like, he would literally vomit on us or the table.
I don't believe in making 4 different meals for the family or making something different if my child decides in the middle of dinner that he would rather eat something else, but I think that each child's needs should be addressed individually.
