Food Choices In The Family- It Is Still Complicated

It was hard enough for my wife to cook for my children and me when the boys were small. We always allowed the boys to choose what they wanted and to choose what they did and didn’t like to eat. Also, she doesn’t eat meat and I do not eat fish so things, as you can imagine, are pretty complicated.

The thing with small children is that although you want them to be free thinkers and know about choice you still want them to eat a balanced, healthy diet. So you do have to guide those choices to a certain degree.

So you develop a honest thought of their likes and dislikes and you place a lovingly prepared nutritious meal in front of them and they say “I don’t like that.” Their palate is growing with them and their likes do change because of this and of course because small Sammy at school doesn’t like it so now it becomes taboo in our house.

My wife usually finished up preparing four different meals to suit everyone. In our parents’ day a meal was made, place on the table and everyone ate it. There was no choice. This may be because the whole meal was hand prepared. Nowadays we have convenience foods, pre-prepared vegetables, packed sauces and quick food restaurants all meaning less time is being spent preparing our meals.

Now my boys are older their food choices are honestly well established making meal choices a bit simpler but we still make at least two meals at each sitting, one with meat, one without and still make the odd mistake and hear those immortal words ” You know I don’t like that”!
