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.

Okay, you are so spying on my family! My boys do that all the time lol. It's okay though, I have one that will eat salad for a snack...go figure. :) Love the comics, they always start my day with a smile.

same here - i was a picky eater and i could never, EVER force my children to eat something they didn't want to eat.

along the same lines, one of the boys' friends had lunch with us the other day and commented that at his house, you aren't allowed to read at the table. lol. another thing i was denied as a child! i consider reading and eating a major pleasure in life. ;^)
