In my house it would be whatever I made or nothing. 10 times out of 10 the kid likes what I made better than whatever they said they wanted instead. This includes other people's kids, nieces, nephews or what have you.

'Course I don't have any grandkids yet. But right now I would say I would do the same thing. Eat what I made or go hungry.

Yeah, talk to me when you have grandkids. I just remember as a kid, my Mom would make something she knew we didn't like. She would always make us fish sticks or grilled cheese. I think it's perfectly fine for children to have taste preferences just like we adults have. I would never invite YOU over for dinner and not cook something I knew you would enjoy. Kids taste buds are not the same as an adults. I wouldn't cook another full dinner for my children but to zap a cup of mac 'n' cheese or let them have a bowl of cereal or a PB & J isn't too difficult.

You know how we make all our mistakes with our first child? I once forced my oldest son to taste something he vehemently didn't want to taste. He was about 2-3 years old. I wouldn't take "no" for an answer and I forced him to taste it. He was so upset and the taste was so terrible to him he actually threw up. I felt very bad for him and I felt like an absolute bully. It also kind of ruined everyone's dinner. Having someone throw up at the dinner table is never a good thing.

Like I said, I think it is respectful to not force a child to eat something they don't like. I'm not saying let them call the shots and demand something different every night. They are humans and individuals with individual tastes and I can honor that on occasion.

That's just my opinion. My kids are not spoiled brats and they are respectful and compassionate of others as I tried to be towards them.

I had the same thing growing up, the only thing I've really ever tried that I don't like are mushrooms, unless they are morrels, thems are tasty!

I always will try to make something that will be enjoyed, and I never force anyone to eat anything. I do accommodate people's different tastes and all. But if I make home-made mac & cheese I won't make another batch of Kraft. They can eat what I cooked or not. Not once has a kid died of starvation under my care (at least not yet). If I like something and I know the kids don't like it (like Brussels sprouts) I will only make enough for myself, and have something additional for them. But they have tried them.

One thing I will say is that my kids have always had rather complex tastes in food, probably in large part because we never cooked separate meals for them, it was one meal for the family and that was it. I remember one time when the boys were probably 3 and 5 we went to a Mexican restaurant for my birthday and my sister just about freaked when the boys went for the chips and salsa as it was a bit spicy. She was totally freaked out when they loved it. She would prepare separate (bland) meals for her daughters every day. To this day they have very "delicate" palates and can't eat interesting foods.

Oh, and my mom did the same thing you did. Forced me to eat zuchini (cooked- which is the worst kind) and I puked all over the table. I haven't eaten zuchini since then. Can't stand the stuff.

Working graveyard I do not eat much. I do bring a lot of snacks but most of the time it does not even get touched.
I bring a pink lady apple (or honeycrisp if in stock), cheese, crackers, pretzels, tapatio doritos, and a couple pieces of candy. I also do not eat much during the work week so I will probaly eat a can of soup a day and then on thursday (my friday) I am hoping to get a buffalo chicken pizza and rent a few movies.

I am not use to graveyard shift and I hate it and eating crappy like this I am hoping to get swing or day shifts or possibly just change jobs asap (I have a few apps in with pepsi, ups, and a few local stores).

I've been working graves for 15 yrs / 12 hr shifts. Your body will get use to it. Tonight it is mac & cheese with hot dogs, tacos, apple pie, cc cookies, a pop, & maybe a piece of cheese cake that is in the vending machine.

That is what I hear but unfortunately this particular company does not have a lot to offer career wise. No raises no benefits so I am actively seeking new work. It is also a site in which the whole contract can be voided at anytime. I work on a week to week basis so it gets a tad stressful. I am beyond happy to have a job I just hope another one pops up soon. I have also done turn around shifts which is 8 hrs on 8 off then back to work. It is no fun work sleep work and no time to yourself

I have worked the graveyard shift and actually prefer it. But I hope you find something more to your liking.
