Do you have an adventurous eater on your hands, or does your child turn his or her nose up at anything but mac ‘n’ cheese?

I’ve always tried to expose our children to all kinds of foods, but I’ve discovered that nature comes into play far stronger than nurture when it comes to what my kids are willing to eat!
This is why I love it when I meet kids who will try anything. I think it’s completely awesome, and I’m a wee bit jealous of those kids’ parents. No matter how many times we’ve read Green Eggs and Ham in our house, I cannot convince my 3 year-old to try ANYTHING!
I recently started asking my friends what the craziest and weirdest foods their kids have eaten and the answers are quite impressive! You better believe I’ll be showing my kids these pictures next time they won’t try something new!
