Eat your food
When I was growing up, my parents forced me to eat what ever was served in plate. Of course we would be given food of choice many a times but not always and we had to eat all the portions we put in our plates so we took just enough quantity we needed. Just wondering how many of your parents did same to you or how many parents out of you are doing same to your children? I am sure this is good way to make children eat everything and don't waste food by taking too big portions and then not finishing that off.
The portions weren't really my problem. It was what was put on my plate. There are foods today that I still cannot eat because of this. Example: Salmon patties, Kraut.
Thanks Jthomp42, ofcourse we wasted food on plate so this rule was enforced at our house. But thanks to that rule I learned to eat everything including all sort of veggies like egg plant ( brinjals), bitter gourd etc.
Yep, eat your food, there's lots of starving kids etc., Never did it cross my mind until I got older that it wouldn't make any difference whether I ate all my food or not. I don't Mae my kids eat all their food, just try to encourage them to eat healthily and be the judge of when they are hungry. That said, they cannot graze all day long and do have to sit and eat at mealtimes, but not necessarily finish everything.
my mom always served us and it was always too much, and yes, we had to finish our plates before we were excused....thank God we had a dog
One day at breakfast, my older sister was forced to eat butter and she didn't want to, and was physically sick as a result. I watched the whole thing as a young child and must have been traumatized by it, 'cos I can't eat butter to this day.

Me, I'm a mixer. I love making one pot meals - starch, veggies and meat all in one bowl. Even when I make separate meat and veggie dishes, I still mix them on my plate. Like, I'll take a fork full of mashed potatoes and stick some chicken or peas on it for one bite. Or...
