I make him taste and judge his reaction. If he gags I make him something else. If he says it is good, but he doesn't want it, I make him eat some of it.

If I make him things I know he usually eats, then he can eat that or go to bed hungry. But I never make someone eat something that makes them sick or they are disgusted by. That's an arrogant way to treat another person. We all have different tastes. Fact.
Exactly. I always make part of the meal something I know she likes. New stuff, I tell her to at least try it. We don't all like the same things. Mackenzie hates green beans. I hate yogurt. She tried to tell me I have to eat yogurt because it's good for me. I told her I'd eat yogurt when she eats green beans

My mom learned the hard way about making me eat things that I was adamant against (the smell alone was turning my stomach). I threw it back up all over the dinner table.
