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.
Well said! I was & still am a picky eater so I totally get my picky dd. We ask that the kids at least try new stuff - sometimes they like it & sometimes they don't. We often make 2 meals - 1 for them & 1 for us. It's really no big deal.
