Did your parents ever force you to eat whatever is on your plate? Would you do the same to your child, why or why not?

I don't want to force them to eat anything they don't want to eat and my parents never forced me either.

My parents never really forced me to eat, but sometimes they would say I had to sit there til I ate it. And if I sat there long enough I didn't have to. I'm not going to force Keith to eat. I like him to try whatever I give him but I wouldn't make him eat it.

my parents never forced us. My mom was pretty laid back.

i won't force Matthew to eat. I don't want to create food issues later in life.

Well, my mom only forced me on a few things b/c I liked everything else!

I did force Freddy to eat his baby foods. And I still force him to try a bite. But only one bite. And more than half the time, he likes it and starts eating it on his own. All I care is that he tries a bite (and preferably doesn't spit it out and hand it to me). But he's a scaredy-cat of new foods, so it's been a FUN battle so far.

He does have my tastes though. He'll eat all sorts of stuff. But he won't try anything. *sigh*

I dont force my kids to eat anything. My parents forced me to eat things I didnt like all the time. I remember how it made me gag and I wouldnt do that to my kids.

My parents didn't force me, but they would make me sit at the table and eat if they knew the only reason I wanted to get up was to go play.

I'm not going to force my kids to eat. I think kids will eat when they're hungry and stop when they're full. The important thing is to offer nutritious foods and hope that they are open to trying new foods.

They never forced me. My family was big on desserts and they always said if you don't finish what is givin to you then you don't get dessert. No biggie. But we always got little servings then if we wanted more we would get more.

And no I won't force my children either. I just pull the no cookies if you don't finish whats on your plate...and he is fine with that...

I remember my mom making me sit there until I ate all my veggies. I got away with the chew and spit it in your napkin trick a few times but then she caught on!! awww man

I won't force reagan to eat but I will make her atleast try it. Right now I offer her things over and over b/c the pedi said it can take them up to 15 tries to decide if they really like it. Plus I am so limited on what she can eat that I am desperate for other options
