I must agree and to disagree with my title. For it happened to me, I do learn by heart when I was young; I was force by my mother to eat green leafy vegetables. Even asparagus, they have tried so many ways for me to eat a little bite of these healthy nutrition foods; however they still failed to do so. Since, I had the hard time to accept and eat them; I never like eating dinner with the family. I never like to sit on the table with the entire member and enjoy the good vigorous meal; my father and my mother cook and provided us. Why I was not enthusiastic about it? Because of those vegetables that was serving on the table. That is how hard [for me] my childhood was. Although, it is for my own good health, still rebuff to eat them. I guess my parents were tired of telling me how important these foods are for my health and body, so I have never heard them reprimanding me, when I reached High School.
In short, we don’t need to force our kids to eat something they think it is not fine in taste. Instead, we should them and just keep asking if they would like to try. And when they see you enjoying those foods, they would like to try it and see how splendid it is. Just like what I showed with my kid, green beans some no fun to appear at. However, showing him that it does tang good, without me asking him twice, he tried and actually enjoyed the taste and eat more of it.
So, I told myself, better show and eat hale and hearty to demonstrate it to your kids that we could enjoy food even if it did not look good in the outside.
