trying new food

before we left on our cruise i told my grandma that i would try lobster for her and we did that and then some. on the ship we tasted lobster, salmon, silverfish,brussel sprouts,oysters (well half an oyster) and a couple more random veggies. we liked all the veggies and we swallowed the brussel sprout but all the seafood was not for us. we came, we ate and we didnt like. with it taking 25 years for me to get over my gross food phobia so i could try new things it has me thinking about our kids and what they will eat. will they get my ability to sit at the dinner table for hours until i get a peanut butter and jelly sandwich or will they get my new try every food once before i dont like it. with children how do you keep their minds open on food when you have your own food dislikes.


  1. Rj is EXTREMELY picky. Brayden tends to be as well. Honestly, the best thing you can do is just try. Just give your kid many different things. If they don't like them, then, oh well. Rj has a tendency to only try to feed Brayden stuff he eats. He tried to feed him hotdogs like 5 times lately. The last time Brayden took his plate to the trash and threw them away. Haha. So, try to be vast with what you give your kids.

  2. i just dont want a kid that only eats cheese sticks or grilled cheese. i want them to eat like a normal person. the other day i saw that an 18 year old has eaten nothing but ramen noodles for 13 years, what kind of parent lets that happen

  3. My oldest son is a horribly picky eater. he'll eat hardly anything for days just because he doesn't like it. I just keep offering him a variety of food, i always add something he does like-but he still doesn't eat much. apparently he can't be bothered with sitting down that long to eat! just keep offering them.
    I am a picky eater as well, but i will always try something once, and maybe a few more times. I just don't like 90% of foods. :p
