Yes, "The Ladies", Canada's pride and joy (no really). Too bad they broke up. This is one of their best!

I agree with so many of the others. His antics of making faces and pouting even in front of company is both ridiculous and childish, but he's not your child. Sadly it sounds like he has some growing up to do, but it's not your job to raise him properly. Ignore the situation and eat the way you choose. He's a big boy so let him prepare his own meals. He's feeding off the attention he gets, just like a child.

Yes I am on the same page as most of you. My Dad was a meat and potatoes guy but my Mom would always put a token. Amount of vegetables on his plate and he would eat them. He tried to get out of it when he moved here. But I just told him Mom made all of us eat "five bites" of what we didn't like and the same rule applies here. 'nuff said!

Withhold his allowance. Send him to his room. Cut back on his television privledges. Give him a time out. Take away his toys.

Then tell him when he stops acting like a child, you will stop treating him like one.

Hard to believe there are three pages here. My hubby doesn't eat salad or veggies or anything green. His doctor said to eat more salads. He told the doctor that he didn't like salad, and the doctor told him to try a new dressing.
Hubby had to explain to the doctor that it wasn't about the dressing, but about the veggies. Anyway, the conversation then changed to other ways to improve his health like exercise, eating more fiber (things other than veggies), and how to ask me to use the blender and put puréed veggies into things I cook for him. It has worked well for us. I never tell hubby what to eat. He is a big boy.

thanks for this, chopper. everyone is so quick to offer condemnations based on a simple question asking for help. maybe the guy is the greatest guy on earth in all other ways (ok, third behind me and chief longwind), but is childish about eating what food eats.

we sbould try to be helpful with our culinary expertise, not judgemental on his behaviour.

One of my friends had a toddler who would only eat bread. She added some veg to the bread when she baked it.

I totally agree. I think it is all how you look at things though. It is important to get healthy things into a person but not to brow beat them into it.

The whole "five bite" thing in my family actually became a good thing. I would quickly eat my five bites of pork chop (love them now) so I wouldn't taste much and I could then get another huge helping of veggies. At the same time, my Dad would eat his five bites of veggies so he could get another pork chop! And when I brought it up when he moved here, it was like Mom was in the room for both of us and a great memory.

I think it is all in the way you handle things.
