    We have 2 daughters 9 and 4. Our 4 year old eats what we force her to but she absolutely loves anything that is not processed. Raw veggies, fish, meat, and fruits anything goes. She favors raw cabbage and often ask for veggies for supper instead of serial or what ever we put on the table. Our oldest would prefer not to eat at all.

    My two kids eat whatever they want. Of course they are 26 and 27, so it's pretty much up to them. Growing up, they just ate what we ate. There was never any thought of them not doing that.

    My little one keeps amazing me. I now just buy stuff to let her try it. Tonight she had dates (easy to love), jicama, pate, radish, aged gouda, and a kale leaf. The kale leaf and radish were hear least favorite, but still managed to gum them for a good period of time. She also chewed on my dog's raw hide treat and ate some diaper cream

    I made some Coq au Vin last night. We had it over mashed potatoes. The older one said that she didn't want to eat the meat or the onion because it looked purple and dark. She said ew. I told her to try it before you say you don't want to eat, because that's all that we are having to eat. She tried it and kept going back for more.

    If my kids don't eat what everyone else is eating, they will starve.

    My kids are grown and gone now but as kids they ate what we did or starve. Now some of my younger grandkids (pre teen group) mothers don't cook so the kids are different in they will only eat chicken nuggets (what ever the hell that is), tater tots, hot dogs, hamburgers and other assorted crap foods and it shows. Basically what can be made in a microwave. Most are over weight to a degree, out of shape and pretty much not what I call healthy looking. God forbid you put a vegetable in front of them however they have no problem with potato chips, French fries or other such stuff all with tons of ketchup on it. They also want ice cream, candy, donuts etc.

    Now the other half mostly older are different in that they eat what is put in front of them, they sit down with my oldest son and his wife to eat. I might add they also eat a real breakfast every morning and are as different as night in day both mentally and physically.
