RE :”You must not be a parent
All real parents know that it is pointless to serve white fish and arugula to little kids because they don’t like it, won’t eat it and will complain they are hungry.”

This thread nor my comment had nothing to do with your parental choices. They had to do with charging me to buy food that kids throw away. If you like to watch your kids enjoy happy meals thats fine with me.

“I am hungry mom”

“Really? Here's some fish and veggies”

“I am not hungry anymore Mom”

‘Thats OK I will save it for you”

more proof you are not a parent but a control freak

My kids ate well and love fruit and veggies, and milk, not an extra pound among ‘em, but they also had access to chips, cookies, candy and gum, pizza, fries and ice cream and chocolate milk, pudding.........all that stuff has nutrituional value too

it is the liberals that want all to eat only granola, want to limit population, kill granny and babies and make life all about sex

Absolutely! I've been known to tell my 9 year-old that he can cook the family dinner if he's not keen on what mom is serving us. I explain that he'll need a protein, a veggie, and a starch. Then he usually digs into what mom's cooked.

Note that we don't serve food that he absolutely doesn't like, but if he just doesn't "feel" like having a green salad before dinner that's too darned bad.
