Home Spun comic strip #337
I've always been laid back when it comes to my children's eating habits. After all, I was a picky eater. I don't think I have the right to force my children to eat something they don't want to eat. On the other hand, I've always tried to offer a wide variety of food and my only restriction on snacks is that I won't buy them unless they are on sale.
This does not mean that I let them get away with eating nothing but sweets. I try to regularly discuss smart food choices and healthy habits and encourage them to try new things. As a result, I'm reasonably certain they eat better and smarter than I do. But I'm learning.
