I totally agree with lissiemel about trying everything. Our daughter likes foods now that neither of us will eat! I dont eat meat, but she loves steak and ham. My hubby doesn't like brussel sprouts or zuccini, but those are some of my daughters favourites! It all depends on how you present the food. If you give it to them and one parent says "eww, that's disgusting", the kid is going to assume they don't like it before they even try it! For the things neither of us will eat (like ham....ewww) we give it to her and say something like "this is Grandma's favourite, you might love it". On the flip side, my brother in law is a picky eatter, and when he had his son, he only fed him foods that he likes, and told him that things like brussel sprouts were nasty. Now my nephew has all kinds of health problems because his diet is so restricted. The only way we have been able to try anything new is by giving it to my daughter, and giving him nothing (at snack time, not meal time, that would be mean!) . Eventually he tries things because he gets mad that he has no snack. It seems like a mean way to do things, but it is to the point that there was no options! So really, setting good positive eatting habbits from the beginning will make a huge difference a few years down the road!
