What Forcing Kids To Eat Looks Like 20 Years Later
I thought this was a really fascinating article. It basically says that a study found that forcing kids to eat things they don't like (broccoli, fish, spinach, what have you) can result in a lifetime habit of avoiding that food. So you might not be doing your kids a favor by forcing them to eat their vegetables!
What do you think? Is a little forced eating good for kids, or should they be allowed to eat whatever they choose?

I have to force feed my kid sometimes. Once he gets a taste of what ever it is, he's fine with it normally.
@Nymrha It's usually just a not-wanting-to-try-something-new thing, right? That's how I and my little sisters always were. But we have a saying in my family, which we use at the dinner table A LOT haha: "If you try it, you just... might... like it!" Lol :) but yeah, I never felt traumatized because my mom told me to eat my spinach. Haha.
