    My "line" to my three kids (and DH, at times!) was, "If you don't like what I'm cooking for dinner, that's fine. You don't have to eat it. But breakfast isn't until tomorrow." In other words, I wasn't making anything else...and neither were they!

    I have four (counting DH) pretty un-picky eaters. icon_lol.gif

    Lest you think I'm too much of an evil ogre, if it was something I know the person truly, absolutely couldn't stand, I was willing to make allowances. For example, DS#2 literally gagged on beets...and not just for attention. That was one I let him slide on. DD hated BBQ sauce...fine, I BBQ'd/grilled, but just left the sauce off of hers. DS#1? Can't think of anything he absolutely can't stand. DH? Liver. Hates it with a passion. I let him slide on that one. Myself? Spaghetti squash. Feels like I have hairs in my mouth. yuck.gif

    A friend with a LARGE family (she'd adopted 28 kids over the years at that point...and that was probably 15 years ago) said that she couldn't afford picky eaters. At the time, she probably had 12 kids in the house. Said she allowed each kid to pick one food they absolutely hated and didn't want to eat. Everything else was expected to be eaten. Hers weren't picky eaters, either. icon_biggrin.gif
