said Sophie as I put dinner on the table last night.
I am not a Mother who cooks only what my children prefer to eat. I believe it's important to expose them to a wide variety of REAL foods - that have good nutritional value. Since we are (mostly) vegetarians, I have to be very intentional about what I put on the table each night.
With that said, I don't believe I cook "crazy" things... well, it's not "crazy" to us.
So, I called everyone to the table last evening, and Sophie looked at her plate and exclaimed, "Mooooom, you know I don't like quiche!"
I don't expect everyone to love everything I put on the table.
But, this is what we do expect:
You must take a courtesy bite (or 2).
You never know what you may actually like!
And... are you going to yell, "Mrs. Smith, you know I don't like quiche!" when you get invited to a friend's house for supper?!
Halle wasn't a huge fan either.
I also had roasted potatoes, yogurt and applesauce on their trays. They ate everything but the quiche.
At bedtime, Halle came down the stairs and said, "I'm hungry." I said, "You chose not to eat all of your supper, so you can eat at breakfast."
Maybe they'll eat more of the quiche next time. :)
