just because they are good for you?
I don't. I refuse to eat anything I don't like the taste or texture of, no matter how nutritious it may be. There are plenty of nutritious foods I do like.
Do you insist that your kids eat foods they don't like just because they're good for them? I didn't. If she didn't like a food, she didn't have to eat it. But she did have to take three bites before declaring that she didn't like it. Some foods, it takes your taste buds more than one sampling to get an accurate reading of the flavor, especially if you've got some other flavor already on your palate. If after three bites, she didn't like it, she was not required to eat it, no matter how nutritious it was. There were plenty of nutritious foods she did like.
