Well, my daughter (19) and her boyfriend came over last night for a last minute thing and I had made a super healthy casserole. The bf picked at his and everyone else loved it. He appears to be a "chicken nugget baby" so I didn't think it was about my cooking. I know it sounds like I'm being critical (which is possible) but it made me think how grateful I am.
I'm grateful that:
-19 years ago I had a pediatrician who really made a big deal about teaching kids to eat healthy.
-My kids love healthy food
-The kids drink water over soda even now
-My children are healthy
-They love sushi as much as I do (now there's some hidden calories)
Now I just need to get these extra pounds off so it looks like it runs in the family.
"Chicken nugget baby" = A teen or adult raised mostly on fast food and it shows in their weight/health/eating habits. Also, they don't like healthy food even before they taste it.
Picky eaters are often called chicken nugget babies but maybe they just really don't like something?
