"When my kids started attending daycare in Paris, I was struck by the lunch menus. Every day, the 3-and-unders were served four-course meals. A typical lunch started with carrot salad and moved on to salmon in lemon-dill sauce with a side of pureed broccoli. This was followed by goat's milk cheese and baked organic apples."

Right in the very first paragraph, it was so dripping with pretentious snottery I just closed the farking window.

Don't you just love it when rich people think that their pampered lives are "normal" and anyone who doesn't measure up is WRONG and they should be told how WRONG they are?

robohobo: My wife has been after me since we were teenagers to eat my vegetables. After she became a doctor it got even worse. Still, all I like are corn, peas, potatoes, and tomatoes in sauce form. None of which are proper veggies. All the rest are just kinda gross.



Ever try growing your own? It's a safe bet that, if you're getting your veggies from a regular grocery store, they are bland from being harvested early, allowed to ripen in transport, and then sitting on the shelf getting misted with water for a week or two.

Home-grown veggies are absolutely delicious. Depending on your climate/location, your options for growing could provide you with things you would never find outside of a farmer's market.

Home-grown veggies are also more nutritious than ones from the store. Soil depletion from commercial farming has created bland, less-tasty vegetables.

Going out to eat with some of my co-workers is a trial.
So many "I can't stand xxx" that we have to balance out.

My "do not like" list is currently empty.
It used to have a few things on it, but I found that they were great if prepared differently.

/too soon?

I don't get it. What the hell is this?

First is Terri Schiavo, second is Karen Ann Quinlan.
Both were in persistent vegetative comas. An awful joke to be sure, but dark, weird humor abounds on FARK.


And for some sensitive folks even years later is too soon....


Fark'em  Two years is the limit unless you're related and even then - five years.

I know a mother who desperately caters to one of her kids's dietary neuroticism. Mac and cheese or fried sliced hot dogs, even when everyone else is eating something else. Of course the kid always causes a scene when they go to a restaurant. Mom is the daughter of a f@#4ing hippie and is terrified of the fussy kid hating her or repressing the kid's individuality or whatever. Kid may be f@#$ed up for life, or maybe she'll just grow out of it, who knows.

Go to an Indian buffet for lunch and force yourself to try some other stuff.

Ooh yeah! If you are looking for an veggie adventure, that's the place to start!

oukewldave: Article can be summed up in 5 words:  Don't be a shiatty parent.


Werd. Kids get what I makw for dinner. No kid menus at restaurants and it WORKS! And once they are old enough, have them help in the kitchen. Demystifying food really helps!
